Current Trinity residents staying for the summer may request the opportunity to stay within residence between the dates of their last exam and the beginning of summer residence (Sunday, May 5, 2024).

Generally, the only stays that can be extended beyond August 17 are those of students who will be living in a Trinity College residence building for Fall/Winter 2024/2025 session. If you believe you may need to stay in residence beyond August 17, please contact the Office of the Dean of Students at summerres@trinity.utoronto.ca by August 1, 2024, so that we may work with you to find the best solution. A fee will be assessed for students wishing to stay in residence between terms.

General Information and Rules

All summer residents and guests are expected to show respect for fellow residents and for College property. Many summer residents take summer courses. The College reserves the right to terminate the summer residency immediately for failure to adhere to the Summer Residence Agreement or any of the rules outlined below, for non-payment of summer residence fees and/or for persistent disruptive behaviour.

Students registered in summer courses at the University of Toronto or eligible to register for the following fall are subject to the University’s Code of Student Conduct as administered by the Dean of Students, Trinity College. Students registered or eligible to register for the ensuing fall term at Trinity College are subject to all relevant Trinity College policies.

Room Changeovers: Beginning & End of Summer

(for current and incoming Trinity College residence students)

Students living in residence for the winter term who also plan on booking a summer residence room beginning at the start of summer residence may request to “bridge” their residence stays.  In order to make a bridging request, please email deanofstudents@trinity.utoronto.ca no later than April 1, 2024.  You will be charged a fee of $55 per night for the time between the end of the academic year and beginning of the summer term.

At the end of the summer, if you are living in residence for the fall and winter, you may request to stay within residence between summer residence and the start of term. If your request is granted, the Office of the Dean of Students will notify you when your fall room is ready, and you will be charged a fee of $55 per night for your bridging stay. Please be ready to move anytime starting in mid-August.

If you are NOT living in residence in the fall but believe you may need to stay in summer residence beyond August 17th, you must request a summer residence extension in writing to summerres@trinity.utoronto.ca, no later than August 1, 2024. If your request is granted, a fee will be charged for your extended stay.

Check-In and Check-Out

Check-in time: after 2:00 pm on the day of arrival.

On arrival, please check in at the Welcome Desk in Trinity College at 6 Hoskin Avenue, where you will obtain your security access key and room key. Please inform the Office of the Dean of Students (summerres@trinity.utoronto.ca) if you will be arriving after 10 pm.

Check-out time: before 11:00 am on the date of departure.

For check-outs after 11:00 am, guests will automatically be charged for an extra day of accommodation at the daily rate. Keys must be returned to the Welcome Desk at departure (lost key charge: $250).

Cancellations & Refunds

Cancellations must be given via email at least 3 business days in advance.  Your summer residence deposit is non-refundable.


Taxes: 13% HST is charged on all stays of less than 30 days where rents are more than $20/day or $140/week; if the stay extends past 30 days, tax is refunded. Current residents continuing for the summer are considered to be extending their stay.

Electrical Appliances

The electrical system will not support excessive loads.  Excessive use of appliances (air conditioners, microwaves, hair dryers, etc.) may result in power interruptions. The College reserves the right to ask residents to disconnect appliances.

Air Conditioners

Due to excessive power loads, air conditioners are not permitted in residence as they may cause power interruptions. Any resident found to be using an air conditioner will be asked to remove it immediately, and anyone that does not comply may be asked to leave residence, and will forfeit residence payments. A limited number of fans are available for rent from the Office of the Dean of Students.


In-room cleaning service is not provided.  However, a vacuum cleaner may be borrowed from the Welcome Desk for a period of one-hour at a time.  Students are expected to obtain any other cleaning supplies needed for their own rooms.  Bagged garbage and recycling should be brought to your nearest washroom or kitchen garbage area, and facilities staff will collect it from there.  If you require additional garbage bags, please ask at the Welcome Desk.

Bed linen is not included.


U of T students may use their UTORid to connect to the U of T wifi network.  Internet connection by way of an Ethernet cable is also an option. If you do not have your own Ethernet cable, you may purchase one from the Welcome Desk. Ethernet cable adaptors are also available for sale at the Welcome Desk.

Download of illegal material is strictly prohibited. The College receives notifications from the internet provider when these materials are being downloaded, and reserves the right to terminate the summer residency immediately for failure to adhere to this regulation.


There are kitchenettes throughout the residence. Kitchenware is not provided. Fridges are communal so please clearly label and date your food. Unlabelled food may be thrown out. Each resident must wash their own dishes promptly and ensure the kitchen is cleaned after use (the cleaning staff will empty the garbage but is not responsible for dishes or food left out).  A limited supply of bar fridges can be rented for the Summer for $75 (plus tax).


App/card operated washers and dryers are located in the basement of each residence building. You can reload your laundry app with funds in the app itself. Locate and download the Coinamatic CleanPay Mobile app in your appstore. Laundry cards can be obtained from the card dispensing machine in the laundry room of St Hilda’s College. There is no refund of any balance remaining on the card.

Occupancy of Rooms

A single room may be occupied ONLY by the person to whom it is rented. Guests are not permitted without prior written permission from the Office of the Dean of Students.  If a room has more than the allotted occupancy at any time, the person reserving the room will be informed in writing and charged double the room rate for the total duration of their stay.


Due to the ongoing construction of the Lawson Centre of Sustainability, no parking within Trinity College is available for residents. There are metered parking spaces across St. Hilda’s Residence for visitors needing temporary parking. For other alternative paid parking spaces on campus during the summer, please check the University of Toronto’s Transportation Services website. 


No cats, dogs, or other pets may be kept in residence rooms.  Exceptions will be made for service animals for students with registered disabilities, following discussion with the Dean’s Office.

Repair Projects and The Lawson Centre for Sustainability Construction

Repairs and renovations may occur over the summer.  If your room is affected, you will be notified and, if necessary and if possible, given a temporary room. Notice of major projects will be posted at the Welcome Desk.

This is an exciting time for the Trinity Community as the construction for the Lawson Centre for Sustainability will continue this summer until its completion in the Spring of 2025. Although the construction site is located across the street from St. Hilda’s College, regrettably due to this, there may be disturbances such as noise, vibrations, dust during construction hours only (as permitted by the City of Toronto Bylaws) and bright lights (at night) which is beyond the College’s control. Nonetheless, we commit to keeping you informed of developments and advocate for residents, so impact is kept at a minimal level.
