Summer Residence

Located in the heart of the University of Toronto's St George Campus, the residences at University College offer all-gender dormitory-style living in both historic and modern halls.

  • Dormitory-style living means residents have their own Single Room. or share a Double Room with another resident, while sharing other common areas and facilities with all residents in the building.
  • Residents at University College live in an all-gender environment, wherein residents of all genders live in the same buildings and on the same floors, while using the same shared all-gender washrooms. This approach is consistent with University College's long history as a welcoming community built on traditions of openness, inclusion, and diversity.
