Future Innovators


Welcome to one of the most beautiful campuses in Toronto! Our downtown location puts the city right at your doorstep. Just south of the famous neighbourhood of Yorkville, you are a short walk to Yonge Street, coffee shops, stores and so much more.  On campus, you will find a comfortable, clean, and safe residence, a beautiful garden courtyard, air-conditioned student lounges, and dining facilities that are modern…with a historic charm.  Finally, WiFi is available throughout the campus.

The majority of rooms available are single, but some students may share a double room with another student attending this programme.  Students are separated within the residence by gender.  Each room has 1 or 2 individual beds, desks, chairs, dressers and/or wardrobes.  All bed linens are provided, along with a bath towel.  Students must bring their toiletries. There are card-operated laundry machines in the residence – we provide laundry detergent.  Shared washrooms and shower facilities are located on every floor. Safety is our priority so our staff live in the same residence, providing full supervision. 

We provide you with three meals daily, Monday – Saturday.  Brunch and dinner are served on Sundays to allow time for you to sleep in. All meals are provided in a modern cafeteria which features various stations offering a wide choice of main courses.  Lunch and dinner are complimented by a full salad bar, dessert offerings and unlimited drinks. All students eat together in the university dining hall that is decorated with the history of the school. Our meals are cooked on-site by professional staff and meet rigid nutritious standards.
