For 150 years, we have been providing a life-changing education to our students.

The University of Toledo has been improving the world since our founding on Oct. 12, 1872, as a public institution. Our graduates go on to conduct cutting-edge research, perform on stage, heal patients, teach in classrooms and make an impact in communities around the globe.

Join us in celebrating our legacy and eagerly anticipating the future: As part of this historic milestone, all contributions to our sesquicentennial campaign will directly support need-based scholarships for deserving students.

Thousands of UToledo students are navigating an uncertain economy to earn their diploma. Last academic year, 77% of enrolled students could not afford the cost of attendance. Among undergraduates, 56% received some type of need-based aid.

Thank you for helping us ensure that financial strain is never a barrier for motivated Rockets with a passion to learn.
