These residences accept applications from the general public in addition to post-secondary students.
These residences all offer single rooms with easy access to the TTC. Some may offer double rooms, meal plans and/or cooking facilities, daily and weekly rates and gym facilities.
The University of Toronto Summer Residence
U of T Residence(s) in the summer operate as hotels during the summer, offering short and long-term stays to students and members of the public. Summer terms range from 1 May to 30 August, depending on the residence. Each residence runs independently and there is no central booking. Thus, you must call the residence directly to make reservations. Please pay special attention to the dates they are open and any minimum stay requirements.
