Excellence Lives Here

Student Housing & Residence Life at U of T Mississauga offers the most diverse range of housing options within the University of Toronto with more than 1,500 single and double spaces in traditional-style rooms, apartments, and townhouses. Our students will have the amenities necessary to provide the comforting feeling of home.

Living on campus provides you with the skills to be successful, both during your academic career and beyond graduation. Students who take part in transition programs achieve a significantly higher grade point average and earn more class credits after four years than students who do not complete the program.
