Your home away from home.
Living in residence fully immerses students in the twenty-four hour life that is the University of Toronto. Living in residence puts students close to their classes, and students from out-of-town will find that residence housing provides an easy entry point to life in a new city. Whether students choose to live on campus or find a place of their own, the University of Toronto has a number of services to help students find a great place to live.
All three campuses provide housing options that welcome students from the GTA, Canada and around the world into fun, supportive and close-knit communities. From their residence homes, students walk to classes and on-campus activities. Movie nights, sports events, study groups, athletic facilities and libraries are nearby, and, as well, each residence has its own sports teams, social events, governance, clubs, study halls, dining options and laundry facilities. Each residence offers services that range from study skills seminars and mentorships to cooking classes and city tours, all of which help new students transition to university life and city life.
Each campus has its own distinct residential communities and styles of residential living. U of T Mississauga has more than 1,500 students living in residence, and offers three different housing options: residence halls, townhouses or apartments. U of T Scarborough residents live less than a two minute walk from academic buildings and the accommodations are either townhouses or apartment suites, ninety-one per cent of which are single rooms. U of T St. George residents live in one of the colleges or in the 1,000 bed Chestnut Residence.
Residence is guaranteed for all new full-time students entering their first year of university in an undergraduate program for the first time, provided that they have indicated their interest in residence by completing the University’s common residence application by March 31, and have received and accepted an offer of admission by June 1.
Thousands of students live in surrounding communities such as Mississauga, Scarborough, the Annex and Kensington. Each neighbourhood offers student-friendly, multi-cultural communities with a range of rental options for students. Housing offices on each of the campuses help students sort through rental listings, find roommates and vet potential landlords.
