The Student Commons
It’s Coming Soon!

A community hub for students on the St. George campus. A place that’s yours – to get more from your U of T experience.


Coming in 2022! Watch here for updates. We can’t wait to see you!

The renovation of the building is finished and the interiors are underway for the first-ever student centre for all students attending classes on the St. George campus. 

It will be a dynamic place. Safe. Secure. Accessible. 

Run by the students and staff of the University of Toronto Students’ Union (UTSU), your future six-storey home-on-campus is at 230 College Street, at the corner of Huron – easily accessible from across the campus or just off the College streetcar. You’ll enter from Huron Street.

Once you enter the building our friendly staff team will be ready to help at the welcome desk in the main floor lobby. There are several rooms and gathering areas where we’ll host a range of activities, a cafe (to come later) and lots more.

When will it open?

It’s been a long time coming, and we’re getting there. Throughout 2022 the building will gradually open for certain programs and services, and we’re forecasting to have the full student experience ready by September 2022.

We received occupancy from the contractors in the spring, and have been focused on getting the interiors and programs ready for you. 

We’re hard at work, constructing spaces for you to get involved, study or just relax. Once complete, there will be university and student service groups sharing the building, as well as food, financial and wellness services and bookable space for groups and activities.

Student spaces, services and social life. 

We won’t wait until it’s done to open the doors. Starting in the new year we expect to move the UTSU into new offices in the building and will gradually open the doors to let you start investigating and get involved as programs are launched. But we hope you can be patient with us as we continue to make the finishing touches and get everything up and running for September 2022.

Watch this space and follow our social media channels for updates as they happen.
