What is Graduate House?

Graduate House is a 426-bed, suite-style residence operated by Spaces & Experiences at U of T in cooperation with the School of Graduate Studies as a primary stakeholder.

We are committed to providing its residents with a supportive environment promoting academic excellence and a fulfilling life. In addition to being a home to its residents, Graduate House also functions as a great recruitment tool for professional faculties. Each year graduate departments and the second-entry professional faculties use 60 percent of all Graduate House spaces to attract the best students to the University of Toronto.

Please be careful to not underpay your tuition charges by $100.
