Location and Access

The University College Library re-opened in 2021 in its new location in "East Hall" (room 266 / 366) on the south side of the UC building. Our revitalized heritage space was the UC Library's original home in the 19th century.

The UC Library may currently be used by:
  • U of T students, faculty, staff, and alumni
  • UTS students
  • external researchers who have purchased a U of T library card

Members of the public who would like to enter briefly to see our revitalized heritage space are welcome to do so.

Four students studying in library

An important aspect of the University College Revitalization project was improving accessibility:

  • There's now an accessible ramped entrance at the southwest corner of the building (near the Cadario Conference Centre in Croft Chapter House).
  • New ramps within the building lead from the accessible entrance to a new elevator, located near the building's main entrance on the south side of the building.
  • The elevator leads to two entrances to the UC Library: our main entrance on the second floor of the College (room 266) and an entrance to our mezzanine (room 366), on the third floor of UC.
