Residences at St Mike's
Where Friendships and Memories Last a Lifetime
Living in residence provides the convenience of being just steps away from your classes, as well as all the other unique opportunities our urban campus has to offer. It’s also an ideal way to experience the independence of living on your own but with a support network to help guide you through the transition. Each of our residence houses is assigned its own ‘don’ who is responsible for fostering community, promoting social and educational events, as well as ensuring the rules of residence are being followed.
St. Mike’s offers two separate residence operations:
- SMC Student Residence which accommodates both men and women
- Loretto College Residence for women only.
Male students can expect to receive information from the SMC Student Residence only, while female students will receive information from both. This information will be sent to you via email so be sure that your e-mail inbox accepts e-mail and attachments from addresses with a ‘utoronto.ca’ domain (you may also want to check your ‘junk’ box regularly just in case).
The University of Toronto guarantees residence to freshmen students

Any students who would like to live in residence but who do not qualify for the guarantee, should contact the SMC Student Residence and / or Loretto College Residence directly, to have their names added to the waiting list.

Our residents come from all over the world and study in a variety of disciplines, at many different academic levels. Situated on the eastern side of the St. George campus, our residence buildings are located in the center of the college's spacious and beautiful grounds. St Michael's provides accommodation for 430 students within 5 buildings that range from older Victorian-style homes to larger, more modern structures.
Loretto College is a residence for women at St Michael’s within the University of Toronto, where students are invited to participate fully in a Christian and academic community. Our goal is to provide an atmosphere conducive to academic excellence and to personal growth on all levels.
