Winter Move-In Maps & DetailsBreak

Students should follow the recommended route found in the January Move-In Map as traffic will be one way on Residence Road through the rolling undergraduate move-in period.

All students will enter from Middle Entrance and immediately go to Oscar Peterson Hall for a Health Screening and Key Pick-up. Once both are done, students can head to their area of residence.

Unfortunately you will not be able to quarantine in your UTM residence unit. However, the University will cover the costs of the U of T 14-day mandatory quarantine accommodation if you have not previously completed a required quarantine in the UofT program. However, if you are required to quarantine again at a later date (e.g.. if you leave and return to Canada), you will be required to cover the cost of the additional quarantine(s). Information regarding quarantine can be found here: https://www.viceprovoststudents.utoronto.ca/covid-19/#Quarantine

Can I move in early?

You can move into residence as early as January 3, 2021. However if you need to quarantine, please visit the Mandatory Quarantine Application for more information regarding available dates.
 

I can't be there for move-in day. Can my parent pick up my keys?

Releasing keys to anyone other than the Resident is prohibited. When picking up keys, Residents must have a piece of government-issued I.D.


What do I do after I've moved my stuff in?

After move-in, we have lots of fun activities for you to engage in through Frost Week. Check out our orientation schedule here to learn more about all the events we have in planned. 
 

Can my parents stay overnight?

At this time, we have a no guest policy in residence; this is to ensure the safety of our residence community. We have plenty of fun things planned for you during that time to keep you occupied! We recommend that parents say their goodbyes to students at their car after check-in. 

 

Do I need to bring my own trolley/dolly? 

Each student has the opportunity to borrow a trolley/dolly to assist in their move. Large bins will be available between January 3-10.
 

Is anyone going to help us move in our things?

If you arrive between January 3-10, we will have staff available to assist you in moving your belongings. 
 

Is there somewhere to store my suitcases/trunks/extra furniture/etc?

Townhouses and apartment style units have common area closets. However, we encourage that you only bring what you need.
 

Can I bring my own mattress or other furniture to my room?

There is no extra storage space in the residences so we cannot store any of the current furniture that is in your room. For this reason, the furniture provided must remain in the unit. If you choose to bring extra furniture for the common area in your unit, you can do so pending space available.
