Welcome to the University of Toronto’s New College Residences!

During the summer months, come experience staying at Canada’s largest university!

Each year, throughout the summer months (May to the end of August), New College Residence offers safe, convenient and affordable dormitory residence accommodation, meeting space and meal services for individuals and groups. New College Residence is open to the general public for “short-term” stays (those wanting to stay a night, a couple of nights or a week) and “long-term” stays (those wanting to stay a month or more, or the entire summer session).

General Information:

  • New College Residence consists of three (3) university dormitory-style residence halls with central air-conditioning (Wilson Hall, Wetmore Hall and 45 Willcocks) with shared communal washrooms and shared common rooms (with kitchen facilities) down the hall from rooms. All three residences are right beside each other and have the same amenities.
  • Room types: Single or Double Rooms
  • 2021 Sessional dates from May 1, 2021 until August 25, 2021 (116 nights) for current New College Residents (all other bookings will start May 4, 2021 for long-term stays)

  • Residents must be 18 years of age or older. Please contact the Summer Residence Office if you are under 18 years of age and require accommodation.
  • The Resident acknowledges that the Residences are located within a major urban centre and, as a result, there may be noise, construction, local events, and other disturbances over which the University has no control that may impact the occupants of the building. During the summer, maintenance and renovation of the Residence occurs and may necessitate limited access to the Room or common areas

Being one of seven colleges that make up the University of Toronto, New College’s architecture, with its brave and bold façade marks it as one of the most distinctive buildings on the University of Toronto campus – winner of numerous awards!
