Huron Sussex neighbourhood

faculty, Student Families, & Long-Term tenants

Huron-Sussex Community



The Huron-Sussex neighbourhood is a charming group of century homes owned by the University of Toronto and located on their St. George Campus. These historic homes have been converted into multiple apartments that house new faculty members, a small number of student families, and some long-term tenants.


Apartments at Huron-Sussex

Each apartment is priced individually depending on unit, size and amenities. With the exception of our single family homes, each unit is located in a house that has been subdivided into multiple apartments. Units will share a common front entrance, vestibule and hallway access. No two apartments are exactly alike.  All units are walk-ups.

There are only a small number of one-bedroom apartments in Huron-Sussex available for student families.

Pets, in modest numbers, are welcome. Please remain vigilant that these “family members” do not disturb/harm other tenants or damage property.  For dogs, a leash policy is in effect and all dogs will be appropriately tethered and attended to, while in co-op common areas; e.g. hallways, laundry rooms, vestibules, shared backyards.  For cats, be mindful that our neighbourhood can be busy traffic-wise.  Urban wildlife such as raccoons, and rodents are present, as well as, from time to time, the occasional hungry coyote.

Smoking, of any kind ( eg. cigarettes,  cannabis, cigars, e-cigarettes (vapes), IQOS, pipes, shisha) is not allowed in the units or common areas (e.g. hallways, doorways, vestibules, stairwells). 

Although Huron-Sussex is a neighbourhood of houses, it is located in a busy, densely populated area of downtown Toronto and can therefore be quite noisy with traffic and construction sounds. 

Noise can sometimes travel from one suite to another. The sub-floors are not solid concrete as is common in high-rise apartment complexes.  We ask residents to please keep excessive noise and activity (eg. stereos, running, jumping and other forms of “horseplay”) to a minimum.
