Summer Rentals

Massey Junior Room

Our summer office is currently staffed part-time and we are now accepting reservations for 2017.  Please note that our programme will operate from May 4, when the office will open full-time, until August 25, 2017.  We offer a variety of accommodations to both students and members of the public for both short and longer term stays.


Designed by celebrated architect Ron Thom and nestled in the heart of the University of Toronto, the College is just steps away from public transit as well as some of the city’s top restaurants, shopping districts, and museums. During the academic year, Massey College is a graduate student residential community connected to, but independent from, the University. During the summer term, members of the College stay on as affiliated summer residents. At this time we also open our doors to non-affiliated summer residents from around the world and offer discounts to students, seniors (65+), and groups reserving ten rooms or more.


As part of the Massey summer community you will have access to many of our facilities, including: Ondaatje Hall, the Robertson Davies Library, the Upper Library, the Common Room, and our beautiful treed quadrangle. In addition, the Massey experience extends well beyond the College’s historical architecture forming a warm, diverse, and interdisciplinary community.


Our standard check-in time is 3:00 PM and check-out is 11:00 AM.  To reserve, please review the 2017 Rates Sheet (below) and complete the fillable Reservation Form and email it to summerresidence@masseycollege.ca.  Please note that only reservation forms that are typed and saved as a PDF will be accepted.  Printed forms that have been scanned or photographed will not be accepted.  Once the form has been processed and the non-refundable deposit (one night’s rent) is charged, you will receive a confirmation email with arrival and check-in information
