Housing and Cost of Living

The Housing Centre provides basic information about single student residence, student family housing, summer housing, and off-campus housing.  Incoming students who have yet to obtain a UTORID are able to access listings by enabling a JOINid.  The site is a good resource for off-campus housing tips and provides a tool for roommate finder.  For additional information, UTM and UTSC have their own respective websites. 

Housing costs depend on the type of accommodation (eg. bachelor, shared-room) and location.  A guide to the living and studying costs can be found here.  You may also check some of our students' budget
