Due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, the student lounge will be operating in a limited capacity. See below…

The CSSU proudly maintains a student lounge in BA 2250 in which students can hang out, network, play games (limited by COVID-19) and ask questions. We have a snack store, gaming centre, study spaces and more! Office operations volunteers manage the lounge, assist in answering questions, and directing students to appropriate resources.

  • Workspace with tables, chairs and a sofa. (please limit due to COVID-19)
  • Kitchenette with sink, microwave, kettle, and basic utensils/tools. (restricted due to COVID-19)
  • Entertainment/gaming centre, with a variety of modern, arcade, retro, and party games. (restricted due to COVID-19)

Over the years, we’ve collected many books from generous (or forgetful!) students, and we proudly maintain a new cozy home for them. We hope that our library shelf provides more accessibility to student learning and curiosity. Students can read in the study space, or borrow a book out with a piece of UofT/govrenment ID. If you’d like to donate a book, please speak to the office manager on duty!
