Whitney Hall at UC

Located at 85 St. George Street, Whitney Hall was originally built as a women’s residence in 1931 with funds donated by Edward C. Whitney, the brother of Ontario Premiere James P. Whitney. The building was named in Edward C. Whitney's honour and is now a co-ed residence home to 250 University College students.

Whitney Hall courtyard


The Whitney Hall residence surrounds a welcoming courtyard that open to the back campus fields off Hoskins Avenue to the east, and St. George Street to the west. The courtyard is primarily used by residence students but is also employed to host college events.
