At the St. George campus Student Family Housing. we house 710 families in two high rise buildings, There are undergraduate, graduate, postdoctoral fellows and postgraduate medicine students.

Student life already comes with a lot of demands. When a student has the additional challenge of juggling their time with a partner/spouse or raising a family, life can become complicated. At Student Family Housing, we are pleased to offer you an affordable apartment-style residence that will help you balance all important aspects of your life.

Here’s what some residents say about Student Family Housing:

“The Student Family Housing at U of T offers unparalleled community resources for student families. Plus, we find it exciting to live in the heart of downtown Toronto, close to all the conveniences and entertainment!”

“Family Housing is a wonderful place to live! I really appreciate the programs for new mothers.”

“Living here gives me the opportunity to interact with a vibrant community of fellow residents. It has broadened my horizons!”

This Is An Exciting Place to Live!

If you want to live near other student families on the St. George campus in downtown Toronto and are interested in the many opportunities presented by the recreational activities, events, field trips and classes that we offer for you and your family, then this is the place for you! You will find this a lively and active community that shares your experiences and faces the same challenges.

  • Walk to class, labs, the Athletic Centre and Hart House – no need for cars!
  • Spend more time with your family than commuters living off-campus!
  • Recreational programs and activities in residence for students, spouses and children!
  • Walk to subways, shopping, Royal Ontario Museum, restaurants and more!
  • Maintenance & security officers on-site, utilities (water, electricity and heat) included in rent!

Is This A Quiet Location?

If your top priority is to find a quiet place to live and study, you should realistically look at living in a residential neighbourhood farther from campus and the downtown core.

Demand fluctuates throughout the year, with July, August and September being the most requested move in dates. If you apply well before receiving academic acceptance, you are more likely to get an apartment offer for your preferred move in date. It may take a year or more if you require two months’ notice, especially if you require a summer move-in date.
