Hart House Renewal

Over the next few years, starting this spring, Hart House will be revitalized, not only to repair and maintain the building, but to help launch us into the next century by creating rejuvenated spaces all across the House.

As you know, our mandate is to provide an inclusive, accessible and safe space for all. During construction, we will be particularly committed to keeping as much of the House open and operational as possible for the benefit of students. We will do our best to minimize disruptions or find replacement options for all our members. Keep an eye on this page for ongoing updates.
