We provide free support, referrals, resources and advocacy on issues of sexism, racism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, ageism, violence, health and poverty through our workshops, events, services and programming.

The Centre was founded by UofT self-identified women undergraduate students in 1986. They organized to create a safe, accessible space for all women at U of T to gather, seek support, and advocate on issues relevant to them. The Centre is a student funded, volunteer driven, non profit, campus, community organization governed by its Collective.

The Centre is just across from the UTGSU at 563 Spadina, on the Ground Floor. More information, including hours of operation and how to get involved, can be found on the Centre’s website.

Harvest Noon Café, located on the top floor of the UTGSU Building, provides a relaxed and inclusive gathering space for both U of T students and members of the wider community to eat, cook, learn about, and express their love for food. They aim to serve local, sustainable, and organically produced food and to support principles of food justice and accessibility. Harvest Noon is a project of the Toronto Sustainable Food Co-operative, an organization initiated by members of the student group Hot Yam! in the Fall of 2011. By building relationships with local producers and like-minded groups, they provide opportunities and support for folks interested in fostering good, clean and fair food alternatives.

Harvest Noon Cafe is open from 10-2 Monday through Friday. Check out the Harvest Noon website for a menu and information.
