The Ryerson Institute of Technology was established in 1948 in response to the need for skilled tradespeople following the Second World War. Built on the historical site of Ontario’s first teacher training college -- known as the Toronto Normal School. The new institute offered theoretical and practical training in various skilled trades such as architecture, costume design and photography.


We believe that education and experience go hand-in-hand. What our students learn in the classroom is enhanced by real-world knowledge through internships and co-ops, or amplified through zone learning, specialized minors and graduate programs.

Living in residence makes life easier. You are right next to your classes, close to public transit, and all other amenities you will need.

Residence is an inclusive community. All-gender housing means that you only need to disclose your gender should you wish to be matched with a roommate or suitemate of the same gender identity as yours.
