Welcome to Ernescliff College

Ernescliff College is a student residence and study centre for men on the University of Toronto’s downtown campus. In its many functions, Ernescliff has helped countless individuals to see their studies, work, and family responsibilities as opportunities for personal development and conduits for societal impact. But most importantly, its family atmosphere has helped turn Ernescliff into a place that these young men can call home.

  • The get togethers helped me to be informed on current events and the snack room was a great time to joke with the others and unwind after a stressful day. The environment is one where you can work hard but also have fun along the way. I enjoyed my time at Ernescliff and encourage anyone interested to live there. You will not be disappointed!

  • I was well entrenched in my Engineering Science program at UofT. The family life and study environment at Ernescliff helped expand my horizons while keeping me focussed on my studies. I also received excellent mentoring and can say that I've gained a number of great friends.

  • The best thing about living in Ernescliff is the ability to have more time to do many things without also being isolated from the world. My last year of Graphic Design at George Brown was very intense. At Ernescliff, I was encouraged to work well and to take advantage of different social opportunities and activities at the residence to get a break from the business of school.

  • Ernescliff was truly a home away from home; I have never met so many people who genuinely cared about you, despite having only met you. Ernescliff has a great study environment and offers outstanding spiritual, professional, and personal formation. It also hosts many fun activities such as movie nights, sports and different outings. As a fresh university student living in a city I was alien to, Ernescliff provided the support I much needed to be successful. I am happy and proud to say that I made life-long friends while living in Ernescliff and that my time in the residence shaped my life for the better.
