The Quad 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.


This expansive outdoor space, which is enclosed on four sides and open to the skies, includes a tented patio and multiple levels with a castle-like ambiance. Our original stonework and leaded glass windows can also be seen from this area. Additional features include large bronze sculptures and a centered flagstone aisle. This private, licensed outdoor space is exclusively booked in conjunction with the Great Hall to provide a one-of-a-kind outdoor ceremony and indoor reception option. You could also stun your guests with an outdoor dance floor area for a magical evening under the stars.
