East Common Room has achieved the Platinum Sustainability Certification.

Establishing Hart House’s signature bookable rooms as sustainable spaces show our commitment to the university’s shared sustainability goals, looking to the Sustainable Change Programs as a key guide. The Sustainable Change Program enables the U of T community to engage in sustainable action and empowers students, staff, and faculty in leading the community in practice. These certifications are reviewed annually.


The East Common Room is located on the first floor and is organized around an impressive windowed alcove space that houses a grand piano flanked by two soaring leaded glass windows. The refined coffered ceilings are complemented by period chandeliers and candle-inspired wall sconces, creating a warm atmosphere. A sleek stone fireplace anchors one end of the room and adds a romantic touch. This room is offered as an alternate venue option for couples planning an outdoor ceremony in the Quad but are concerned about inclement weather. It is also a cozy and inviting option for fall or winter ceremonies.
