Where you live and how you get to your classes are important parts of university life.
Toronto Metropolitan University gives you information to help you decide whether you should apply for residence or seek housing off campus. If you live off campus, you will also get information about public transportation options and parking services to help you with your commute.
Living on campus can make university life easier. If you live on campus, you do not have to worry about the hassle of commuting; all your classes are just outside your door. If you choose a residence style that includes a meal plan, you do not have to worry about grocery shopping or cooking either.
Residence has set aside a small number of beds for Indigenous students who self-identify on the residence application.
Email Toronto Met for more information about residence.
Residence life is about more than where you live – it is where you will find a community. With a senior student mentor to guide you, you will have the chance to participate in exciting programming that builds on what you are learning inside the classroom while getting to know students from different programs.
Toronto Met’s off-campus housing website provides a list of rental properties, a roommate finder tool and an off-campus search guide to help you locate housing in Toronto.
Whether you live in residence or off campus, finding a place to eat is made easier with the university’s meal plans, which give you access to both on- and off-campus vendors.
