  4. Option D: $13,600

Please note that we have made some adjustments to the timing for collection of residence fees for 2016-2017, which we believe will be more beneficial for students, but will be different for returning students. Please read the dates below carefully and feel free to contact the Office of the Dean of Students with any questions.

  • March 31, 2016 at 4:00 p.m. - Residence application and Deposit #1 of $600 due for all returning students.
  • June 1, 2016 at 11:59 p.m. EST - Residence application and Deposit #1 of $600 due for all newly admitted students.
  • August 2, 2016 at 4:00 p.m. - Deposit #2 of $1000 due for all students to confirm their place in residence. Please note that more information about Deposit #2 will be sent with confirmation of your residence assignment in July.
  • September 30, 2016 - Balance of Semester #1 residence fees due for all students.
  • November 30, 2016 -  Balance of Semester #2 residence fees due for all students who have not officially deferred their fees on ROSI/ACORN.

When you filled out your residence application, you selected a Meal Plan option. You can Log into The Hub  and click on the “View My Meal Plan” link to see your current selection. If you are not happy with your current selection, Meal Plan selections can be changed up until August 19, 2016 by logging into The Hub and requesting a change under the "Change My Meal Plan" link. On August 19th, we turn off the option to change the meal plan, to ensure all meal information is correctly loaded onto your T-Card for the start of the academic year.

Once the academic year begins, and the dining hall opens, some students decide that the meal plan they selected isn’t quite right. If this is the case, you can log back into The Hub  as of Friday September 9th and request to change your meal plan under the "Change My Meal Plan" link. Please keep in mind that this option is only available up until September 23, 2016, at which point you can no longer make changes to your meal plan.


Please use your University of Toronto fees invoice to pay your Trinity residence fees at any major Canadian financial institution. See for payment details. Allow 10 days for processing. Note special instructions for payments from outside Canada.

Note: U of T does NOT send paper invoices.  You MUST monitor your ROSI/ACORN account balance online (  Regular reminders are sent to your UTOR e-mail.


Residence fees are payable in two installments, although you are welcome to pay the full balance by the first installment deadline of September 30, 2016. If you would like to pay the full balance at once, add the amount under “1st Installment” and “2nd Installment” in the chart below to come up with your full amount for payment.

RESIDENCE DEPOSITS #1 and #2 are non-refundable and applied against the first installment. The first installment is half of the total amount, minus the amount of the residence deposits already paid ($600 + $1,000).

All arrears from previous sessions MUST be cleared before current session fees are accepted.


INTEREST IS CHARGED ON ALL OUTSTANDING ACCOUNTS, EVEN IF A PAYMENT PLAN HAS BEEN AUTHORIZED. Interest is calculated at 1.5% per month compounded monthly (19.56% per year) and first charged on October 15, 2016.  To avoid interest charges, payments must be made by the end of the previous month.


Meal service runs from Tuesday, September 6, 2016 until Tuesday, December 20, 2016 and from Thursday, January 5, 2017 until Friday, April 28, 2017. The Winter Break is considered the period from Wednesday, December 21, 2016 - Wednesday January 4, 2017. There are no meals or housekeeping services during the Winter Break.

Note: Any stay between December 21, 2016 - January 4, 2017 must be requested and approved in advance by the Office of the Dean of Students. More information will be made available about this request process by the middle of the first semester. Students are charged a rate of $100 for each night stayed during the winter break, up to a maximum of $300.

For information on move-in dates, Winter Break stay-overs and departures, please contact the Office of the Dean of Students.

Upon move in, you will be asked to fill out a Residence Room Inventory Sheet and return it to the Porter's Lodge in your respective building. You can find this document in your room upon arrival, or at the Porter's Lodge. You can also download it HERE


If you are contemplating moving out prior to the end of the academic year, you must contact the Office of the Dean of Students to discuss your situation and planned departure. If you decide to move out, your residence fees will be pro-rated to the date you hand in your keys to the Porter's Lodge, and you will be charged a departure fee of $2,500.00.  There are no refunds for departures after January 30, 2017.


Your full set of keys must be handed in when you leave residence. Failure to do so will result in a $250 charge to your U of T fees (ROSI/ACORN) account.


If you share a double room for an entire term (fall or winter), you will be reimbursed $250 at the end of the term. The rebate is applied to your ROSI/ACORN account.  Please note that "super" rooms are not eligible for this rebate.


Residence deposits for returning students are due in February/March 2017. You will receive notice of the re-application process in early 2017.


If you are not academically registered at Trinity College, you must pay Trinity Student Society Fees ($119.25) and half the College Fee ($313.00/2 = $156.50) in addition to residence fees. (Trinity students are charged these fees with tuition.)
