Participants have the opportunity to stay in residence while attending the program. The residence is located just a short walk from U of T’s Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering, where courses will be held. Students will dine together in the dining 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!
Students attending two or more consecutive one-week courses stay in residence over the weekend between courses. This option is only available to students staying for consecutive weeks.
The residence is a ten-minute walk to the engineering buildings where most courses are held.
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 would like to pack lunch. Students are required to purchase their own lunch. Students staying over the weekends will also be provided with lunch (on the excursion Saturdays and in the dining hall on Sundays).
