Navi: Your U of T Resource Finder
Navi, short for navigator, is a chat-based service that acts as a virtual assistant for students looking for general information on many topics, including admissions, financial aid, getting involved, careers, convocation and more, along with resources for students wanting to learn more about the mental health supports available to them at the University of Toronto. All a user has to do is click on the chat button and tell Navi what they need help with. From stress and anxiety to feelings of discrimination or loneliness and everything in between, Navi is able to help by quickly searching for and providing the user with contact information and direct links to U of T resources. This way, the user doesn’t have to know the name of the service in order to find what they’re looking for.
