Please refer to our Fees page for further details including deadlines for payments.
For more information about payments options, please review the University of Toronto Student Accounts payment information.
Yes, you can make both payment installments at the same time.
Residence fees cannot be deferred (like tuition fees).
Please note as well that OSAP funding has not typically been able to cover the full costs of both tuition and residence fees. As such, you’ll want to ensure you plan accordingly and we suggest first connecting with your Registrar’s office to determine what options may available to you in terms of financial aid (grants, bursaries, etc.).
Under the Income Tax Act, universities are exempt from paying municipal property taxes. As such, Residence fees cannot be claimed as rent for income tax purposes.
The Ontario Income Tax Act stipulates that all students living in designated university (tax-exempted) student residences are limited to an Ontario Energy and Property Tax Credit claim based on an occupancy cost of $25 for the time they resided in the student residence. Therefore, the amount that can be claimed for income tax purposes is $25 and not the full amount of residence fees paid. On Line 6114 (Student Residences) of your income tax return, tick the box to claim $25 as your occupancy cost for the part of the year you lived in residence.
