St Michael’s Residence (SMC Residence) is the oldest residential community at U of T. Founded in 1852 by the Basilian Fathers, a congregation of Catholic priests, St Michael's has been serving the needs of students from all backgrounds for over 150 years. 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.
