Annesley Hall

Annesley Hall is the all-female residence at Victoria College, University of Toronto campus. The residence is a National Historic Site located across from the Royal Ontario Museum.

Built in 1903 and renovated in 1988, Annesley Hall is the first university residence built for women in Canada. It was home to the first female resident at the University, as well as the first female to graduate from a Canadian medical school.

Annesley is noted for its close-knit community life and is also known for its elegance and uniqueness. No two rooms are the same, and students in Annesley are able to enjoy exclusive common space, such as the Tackaberry Library and the Music Room, found on the main floor.

Annesley Hall was a location used in the shoot of the 1974 horror movie Black Christmas.
