Room Bookings & Pub

The UTGSU building at 16 Bancroft Ave offers free space bookings for members of the Union. These spaces are available for a variety of activities between 10:00 AM and 11:00 PM. Use is restricted to quiet activities from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM. We also have a pub serving beer, alcohol, spirits, and snacks that has an accessible outdoor patio.


The Pub is located in the UTGSU Building on the first floor. It is a great place your course union or student group to book for a party! For more information or to reserve the space, please call Harry, the Pub Owner, at (416) 978-8466. The pub is open 12-12 Monday to Thursday and 12-1am Friday.
