DEEP Residence

DEEP Residence 2014
DEEP participants have the opportunity to stay in residence while attending the program. Participants in the residence program will stay in St. Hilda’s residence at Trinity College, just a short walk from U of T’s Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering, where DEEP courses will be held. Students will dine together in St. Hilda’s Melinda Seaman Hall and Trinity’s Strachan Hall.  A trained staff of residence dons will live with the participants. The residence program is a great opportunity to explore Toronto and gain some insight into what university life is really like!

St. Hilda's Residence

St. Hilda’s Residence, at Trinity College, is located at 44 Devonshire Place in the heart of University of Toronto’s St. George campus. The residence opened its current location in 1938, and was historically the Women’s College of the University at Trinity College, once a federated college of the University of Toronto.

DEEP participants will live in private and shared rooms with access to a student lounge and bathrooms. Each room has a bed, chest of drawers, mirror, desk and chair and bookcase. Laundry facilities are available on-site. DEEP residence dons will be around to offer orientation and assistance to students.

Trinity College is a ten-minute walk to the Galbraith Building and the Bahen Centre where the majority of DEEP classes are held.


Students living in residence will have breakfast at Melinda Seaman Hall (St. Hilda’s) and dinner at Strachan Hall (Trinity).  The dining halls are all-you-care-to-eat. DEEP is pleased to accommodate allergies, as well as vegetarian and halal needs.

For lunch, students can choose between over 20 dining options on or near the campus. There are also grocery stores in the area and fridges/food storage space in residence for students who’d like to pack lunch. Students are required to purchase their own lunch. Lunches on weekends will be provided for students staying in residence through the next week.
