The University of Toronto guarantees placement in residence for all new full-time students entering their first year of university in an undergraduate program for the first time, provided that they have indicated their interest in residence by completing the StarRez application by March 31, and received and accepted an offer of admission by June 1. All residence applications for incoming students are directed through StarRez, which is operated by the University of Toronto’s Housing Services.
Trinity College aims to house, within its residences, as many Trinity students in the Faculty of Arts & Science who are eligible for the University of Toronto Residence Guarantee for First-Year Applicants as possible, and will allocate approximately half of our initial residence spaces to students in this category. For those students admitted to Trinity College who qualify for the Residence Guarantee for First-Year Applicants, you will be contacted in early June regarding the next steps in applying to live in residence at Trinity. Be sure to monitor the inbox of the email address that you used to initially apply to the University of Toronto, as this is where application information will be sent.
You must respond to all deadlines and meet all deposit requirements in order to maintain your eligibility for residence. If you do not have the University of Toronto Residence Guarantee for First-Year Applicants, you can still apply and get on a residence waiting list.
Check your email frequently for an update from Trinity College! If you have any questions, contact the Office of the Dean of Students at email@example.com.

Trinity has two traditional-style residence buildings (Trinity College Residence and St Hilda’s College Residence) with a combination of single, double, and triple rooms. There are approximately 470 first-year and upper-year students living in residence, split between both buildings. Both buildings are co-ed, with students living in either all-gender or gender-specific areas, and with shared washroom facilities on each floor. St. Hilda’s also has full kitchens or kitchenettes on every floor for shared use. Visit our Campus Map and filter by Residence.

Graduate and professional faculty students, our Academic Dons live in residence and provide academic counselling and support for all Trinity students (resident and commuter).
