University of Toronto Summer Projects Scheme

As you will be undertaking your placement during the summer vacation period, different accommodation arrangements will apply. Once the final dates of your Summer Project have been confirmed, email vacation-accomm@strath.ac.uk to request accommodation.  Please do this as soon as possible as accommodation is not guaranteed.  If there is no campus housing available for the dates you require, you will be given information on alternative accommodation outside the University.

If you have any questions, please contact the Recruitment and International Office Exchange Team.
