The Woodsworth College Residence houses full-time undergraduate students at the corner of Bloor and St. George Streets. Designed by the award-winning architectsAlliance, the Woodsworth College Residence features a four-story podium plus a shimmering 13-storey glass tower, designed to fill all the rooms with natural light and providing an inspiring addition to the downtown streetscape.

Students live in air-conditioned, suite-style apartments with private, single bedrooms. Each suite houses four to six residents, with two bathrooms, a shared kitchen and living area. There are laundry facilities on the ground floor, plus 24-hour security, high-speed internet access, common areas and a Residence Life Program of social events, student government, educational programming and counselling – all included in a residence that is just steps away from libraries, lecture halls and athletic facilities. The Woodsworth residence features an enclosed courtyard and a multi-purpose room on the main floor. These areas provide space for resident and non-resident students to mingle and meet.
