Hart House

At Hart House, students broaden their education and find a sense of purpose, belonging and community. For many students, Hart House is the difference between a great education and a life-changing one.

As we start our second century, we invite you to support critical innovation efforts, historic programs and the revitalization of our cherished building to ensure that Hart House can continue to be a welcoming haven for students over the next 100 years.

A global worldview is at the core of Hart House.

As an assistant with the Hart House Global Commons, I’ve had the opportunity to connect with students and staff from different backgrounds about climate change. Their perspectives challenged my views and broadened my understanding about one of the most pressing issues of our time. Learning about climate-related experiences from other parts of the world was truly eye-opening. This experience has helped me learn how my voice fits into the global dialogue and has inspired me to seek out other opportunities to make connections beyond borders.

Hart House Innovation Fund

Hart House was a revolutionary idea in 1919, and continues to develop innovative and exciting co-curricular education that meets the needs of the current and future generations of students. Examples include the Finance Committee working with local high school students to teach financial literacy, the Fitness Centre welcoming youth from priority neighbourhoods and the Hart House Global Commons program which connects students from all three campuses to students at partner international universities to discuss global issues.

Hart House Capital Revitalization Fund

Over the next few years, Hart House will be revitalized, not only to repair and maintain the building, but to help launch us into the next century. Hart House is making critical investments to improve the physical accessibility, so that students and community members of all physical abilities can better engage at the House.

Hart House Programs Fund

For many students, the niche they found at Hart House made all the difference. Whether it was the debating team, Hart House Theatre, the art committee or the Fitness Centre, Hart House's historic programs have helped students chart a bold new course for their futures. Today, we are looking to re-invest in these welcoming engines of student engagement.

For its centennial celebrations in 2019, Hart House is commissioning a major, permanent artwork by an Indigenous artist to transform its historic Great Hall. With guidance and input from Indigenous voices and other members of the University community, a jury of Indigenous artists and curators will select the winning proposal which will be completed over the next year and unveiled on November 12, 2019 during a gala celebration to mark Hart House’s 100th Anniversary.
