Loretto College               Women's Residence

ROOMS

Currently, Loretto College accommodates all residents in single rooms. Loretto offers two different types of single rooms for undergraduate students: a “standard single” and a “super single.” If both room types are available, residents must select one in the application process. Your room preference is confirmed by the Dean’s Office via email. 

Standard single rooms contain an in-room sink, with shared washroom access.

Super single rooms (formerly occupied as a double room) contain an en-suite washroom that is shared with a “suitemate” in the adjoining super single room. The door to the private suite, as well as the bathroom door, can be locked for privacy.

Graduate student rooms are fully furnished with twin bed, dresser, desk with lamp, bookshelf, closet and storage space.

Frequently Asked Questions: 

Do you provide bed linens? 

Yes. Beds in residence rooms will be dressed with linens upon arrival. If a resident chooses to use these linens, they will be washed every other week by housekeeping staff. However, residents are encouraged to bring their own set of linens for regular use.

 

Can I bring my own mattress? 

No. To reduce the risk of bed bugs (which have seen a resurgence in large cities), personal mattresses, beds, or futons are strictly prohibited- this policy also applies to new mattresses still in original packaging. 

 

Can I remove furniture from my room once I arrive? 
No.  All the furniture provided in your room must remain there for the year.  Loretto College does not have enough storage space to remove and store unwanted items. 

 

Can I send items to the College by mail now and pick them up when I arrive? 

With some exceptions, we ask that none of your personal items arrive before you do, as our mail room has very limited storage. If you have items that will arrive while you’re in Mandatory Quarantine, contact loretto.college@utoronto.ca, to inform the Dean’s Office. Please do your best to wait to order or have items arrive until you’re on campus! 

  

NOTE: One of the benefits of being an ‘urban campus’ is that there are plenty of shops within walking distance of our campus (e.g. Dollar Stores, Pharmacies, Canadian Tire, The Bay, etc.)  So, if you forget something or would rather purchase bulkier items after you arrive, no problem!
