Student Housing Advisory Committee


The Student Housing Advisory Committee provides students with a forum to voice opinions and ideas to the University of Toronto Mississauga Department of Student Housing & Residence Life, and serves to facilitate bi-directional communication between students and housing staff.


Student representatives provide input and feedback on matters pertaining to housing services, programming for students, resources and departmental budget priorities. Areas of interest for which student feedback and discussion is invaluable include:

  • Student needs in various communities, including undergraduate, graduate/professional, bachelor & family communities;
  • Housing policies, services, student conduct structures, customer service and engagement issues;
  • Budgetary priorities for the department and housing fee consultation;


Membership is composed of the following student representatives:

  • Two (1) Graduate Student (non-family) Representatives
  • One (1) Family Representative
  • Three (3) UTM Undergraduate Residence Council Executives
  • Two (2) UTM First Year Residence Community Representatives
  • One (1) UTM Upper Year Residence Community Representative
  • One (1) Residence Life Don
  • One (1) Peer Academic Leader
