On November 11, 2019, Hart House celebrates its 100th anniversary as a student-focused centre for the arts, dialogue and wellness at the University of Toronto.

More than just a physical space, Hart House plays a pivotal role as a diverse and inclusive gathering place that enhances the student experience on all three campuses and provides a haven for students and community members to come together in collective pursuit of what the Founders of Hart House called “high endeavour”. With our 100th  year upon us, Hart House is proud to remember our past, celebrate the present, and envision an inclusive and exciting future for students over the next 100 years. Beginning in May and continuing until Spring 2020, we hope you will join us for a series of exciting and innovative events that will bring together alumni, students, staff, and the broader community to showcase the impact that Hart House has had and continues to have on the University of Toronto and beyond.

FAQ: What you need to know about the Hart House 100th Anniversary

The Warden’s Message

“Since it was opened by then-Governor General the Duke of Devonshire in 1919, Hart House has brought together students from different colleges, faculties, and disciplines to form connections with one another not because of their similar academic pursuits, but because of their shared interest in discovering new facets of their common humanity outside of the classroom.  Today, as Hart House prepares for a year-long celebration of its 100th anniversary, the enthusiasm and excitement of students for this unique approach to student engagement is still as robust as ever.  Apparently time really does fly when you’re having fun.” (continue reading)
