Graduate House prides itself on being able to provide a multitude of multifunction common areas. There are a number of lounges and study areas scattered throughout the building – each with campus WiFi access. There are two TV areas and a large common room with a pool table, ping pong table, and foosball table. Our music room offers residents a piano to practice, storage space for their music, and extra seating for fellow musicians. The International Reading Room is stocked with newspapers and periodicals from Canada and around the world.
In the summer, residents enjoy working outside in our gated courtyard or barbecuing with their friends in the evening.
In addition to the large collection of common spaces, Graduate House provides a variety of useful building amenities and services to be enjoyed by its residents. A bright laundry room is located on the Courtyard Level, visible from the main common area and TV room. Residents use convenient, reloadable-value laundry cards to operate the machines.
Two bike rooms inside the building offer secure storage for 44 bicycles at a rate of $5 per bicycle per month. Residents can apply for bike spaces (subject to availability) and they are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. Unfortunately, due to the high level of demand there is no guarantee that a bike space will be available at the time of move-in. Underground parking is also available at Graduate House. All parking anywhere on the University of Toronto campus, including under Graduate House, is managed by University of Toronto Transportation Services. For information on rates, availability, and how to apply for a parking permit, please contact them directly.
