Summer Rentals

Massey Junior Room

Whether you’re in Toronto for a few days or a few months, Massey College is an ideal place to stay from May 1 to August 28. 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.

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.

We are looking forward to having you stay with us. If you have any questions about Massey College or how to reserve a room, please feel free to contact Tomas or Milan by e-mail at summerresidence@masseycollege.ca or by phone at 416-946-7843. You can also download a reservation form directly from the website and send it to us via email or fax.  Our office is open from May 1 to August 27, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on weekdays and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekends.

    Hello. I require a single room with ensuite for May 20-23. Can you let me know if you have spaces available and what the rates are? I have stayed with you in the past, but not for sometime. I have tried downloading your form and filling it out, but nothing seems to work.

    I sent an application form , but haven't received a confirmation. I've cancelled my lease in Rantoul as of 30 April. I need confirmation that I can move in to Massey on May 1 or if not when is the earliest date. Thanks. kmwilkening@hotmail.com

    I require two suites, each with double occupancy (2 couples) for May 29th, May 30th. My parents are elderly, so I would appreciate the suites with private bath. We are accompanying them for the Engineering Class of 1954 alumni event (May 30, 31). I have sent an email and will be faxing the form as well. Realize that you are not officially open until May 1, but would appreciate, if possible a reply.

  • Hello, On Monday 14 April I received the following email from Tomas, which I answered on 15 April, saying my cc was ok, and could he please charge the deposit again : I’m in the process of confirming your reservation to stay at Massey College from May 1 – May 17. It seems the credit card number you provided will not accept the $55 deposit for the room (it says declined). It may be that you have to contact your CC company to tell them to expect a transaction from another country. I have placed a hold on your room for the moment but please let me know when I can process the deposit to confirm your reservation.
