Graduate House Fees

Occupancy fees are charged monthly and are pro-rated to reflect both your offer date and your move-out date. If you are a University of Toronto student, your fees are charged directly to your ACORN account. No damage deposit is required. Non-University of Toronto students are required to pay their monthly fees via Canadian debit card, money order, or certified cheque and are required to provide a $500 refundable damage deposit upon move-in. Please note that the refundable balance of this deposit will be repaid via cheque within six (6) to eight (8) weeks after move-out.

In addition, all residents of Graduate House are required to pay membership fees to Graduate House Council (GHC). GHC is a student council elected by the residents of Graduate House. The mission of this nine-member body is to develop a sense of community at Graduate House. As stipulated by the Occupancy Agreement, Graduate House collects a non-refundable levy from each resident that is put toward social and cultural events. GHC fees are charged at $11.67 per semester ($11.66 for the summer) and are paid in the same manner as occupancy fees, to be remitted to the GHC by Graduate House on the resident’s behalf.

Finally, all residents are charged a full last month’s occupancy fee upon move-in in addition to their pro-rated first month’s fee. The last month’s payment is held until your final month and no interest is paid on this money.

How Your Graduate House Deposit Affects Your ACORN account

If you are a University of Toronto student, your application fee will be reflected as a $100 credit (CR) on your ACORN account. Your Overall Balance on your ACORN account will then be displayed as owing $100 less, but this credit is specially earmarked so that it can only be applied to Graduate House charges. Please be careful to not underpay your tuition charges by $100.
