Life at Vic

Campus Life

Looking to get involved at UofT? We can help you find your place at the university beyond the classroom. Our Campus Life Coordinator and VUSAC Student Commuter Commissioner work hard to meet commuter student needs by organizing many clubs, organizations and events.

Need a good place to eat? Grab a coffee at Caffiends, our student run fair trade Café in Old Vic, or grab a bagel at Ned’s Café.

Looking for a place to hang between classes? The lobby of Old Vic is a popular choice for studying or for socializing. There are also a number of student spaces available including the Student Lounges in the Goldring Student Centre. For a quieter place, try the E.J. Pratt or Emmanuel College Libraries which have countless study spaces and computers ‐ you can even borrow a laptop!

Residence Life

Living in residence will be one of the most rewarding learning experiences in your University career. It lets you explore and connect to our dynamic and diverse community - a community filled with smart, caring and vibrant people ‐ some of whom will become best friends, and some of whom will become trusted advisors. It is where you will begin to find your place at Vic.

Residence Admissions

With 800 residence spaces available, Vic offers several living styles including co-ed floors, all female houses and suite style apartments.

Meal Plans:

All students living in residence are required to purchase a meal plan. There are two options for first year students and three options for upper-year students.

Room assignments:

Most first year students are assigned to share a double room. We will make every effort to match you with a roommate with similar lifestyles. Room assignments for first-year students will be mailed throughout July and August.

Upper year students are normally assigned to a single room. Please note that we may not be able to accommodate your first choice.

All room assignments are processed with a lottery system based on year of study. For more information, please visit Vic’s Residence Life website.
