Single students may choose to live at Wycliffe in the residence. Our residence hosts students from across the University of Toronto and includes a meal plan. Living on or near campus allows students to easily enjoy community life and library access. Learn more>>

Toronto’s extensive transit system (streetcars, buses, trains, and a subway) within the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) provides students with a lot of flexibility as to where they live. For those outside of Toronto who commute into the campus, there are many buses and trains into the city. Learn more about transportation here>>
Your best option is to find a place within a 10-min walk of the subway, rather than to rely on streetcars or buses (slower/less reliable), even if the subway location is farther away. The subway lines are shown in green and yellow on Google Maps.
The following websites may be helpful in locating a place to rent:
- Off-Campus Housing Search - good for finding a place to live or roommates. Advanced Degree students (MA, ThM, PhD, DMin) may have to pay to login.
- Gracifieds – a free classifieds forum run by a local church. Information about housing rentals, roommates wanted, free furniture, etc. (Note – you must request permission to join.)
- Viewit.ca, kijiji.ca, www.padmapper.com
*Note: Scammers do exist on some of these sites, so use your judgment. Know your rights: Information for New Tenants
