Hart House is a student activity centre at the University of Toronto. Established in 1919, it is one of the earliest North American student centres. Hart House was initiated and financed by Vincent Massey, an alumnus and benefactor of the university, and was named in honour of his grandfather, Hart Massey.
Conceived as a place for cultural, intellectual and recreational functions alike, Hart House contains a range of facilities that include a gymnasium, swimming pool, archery range, theatre, art gallery, reading and sitting rooms, lounges and reception areas, offices, library, music rooms, conference and study rooms, restaurant and auditoriums. Hart House is organized into standing committees composed of students and faculty, and is governed by a similarly composed board of stewards and the warden.

  • Hart House has my Heart!
    guestBook Guestbook/ HeatherExplore/ Jun 1, 2017

    After 4 years of being a UofT student, I can proudly say this place has been my sanctuary. First off, the gym has all the facilities you could ask for and more! There are various free drop-in sessions for all fitness levels, such as Zumba classes to Street Dance to Aqua-fit (did I mention they have a pool?). I'm guilty of attending a couple of these classes and have not regretted breaking a sweat. The only catch is, it is only open to current U of T students and Hart House Fitness Centre members.

    Second, they have a quiet and spacious reading room and library on the second floor for when you need some alone or study time. Third, the food in the Arbor room is one of the best I've tried on campus and on top of that there are usually live performances that happen often during the later hours. I remember sitting in the Arbor room eating dinner with a friend while the jazz band played in the background and we found ourselves watching the UofT idol competition. You can never go wrong with a dinner and a show.

    I honestly have nothing bad to say about Hart House, only that I'll miss being a student because I won't be able to go as often. The architecture of this building is beautiful, the atmosphere is welcoming and there are tons events always happening!

    Hart House is indeed my love. If I was able to havea great eexperience in Canada was thanks tothe many activities Hart House has to offer!
    I've gone multiple times to the gym, studied in the small library in the second floor (by the way, I tool the picture of the cozy couches of this library instead of the reading room), played pool, and participated in the amazing workshop of Get Crafty (which is free!!), and been part of the festival of dance.
    And all of this is just a small part of what Hart House can offer!
    Definitely a great space :)
