All-Gender Housing

Residence is an inclusive community. All-gender housing means that you only need to disclose your gender should you wish to be matched with a roommate or suitemate of the same gender identity as yours.

Community

Living on campus will immerse you in the residence and Ryerson community. You will have the opportunity to build connections with a diverse group of people and be involved in residence and campus life. It is your chance to be at the heart of events and activities happening on campus and in the city of Toronto.
