Prohibited Plumbing Alterations at UFH 

Residents are reminded that making plumbing alterations to their apartment units, such as changing fixtures like shower heads and kitchen faucets or installing bidets, is strictly forbidden at University Family Housing.  

Alterations such as this can create serious plumbing problems and have led to floods in the building. Tenants will be held financially responsible for any damages caused by alterations of this nature. 

As stated in your lease agreement: 

The Resident must not make any alterations…. or alter equipment or install fixtures therein without first obtaining the written consent of the Landlord.  

Plumbing alterations can lead to serious consequences for other residents in your building, which is why University Family Housing does not allow for such changes. If you are interested in understanding the types of changes you can make to your apartment unit, please visit our website. 

Building Heating Systems Remain On 

Please be advised that the long-term overnight weather forecasts for Toronto are still calling for lower temperatures and, as a result, the building heating systems must remain on, but will operate at a lower output. As landlords, we are required by the City of Toronto By-Laws to provide heat to a residential dwelling at a minimum of 21 degrees Celsius between September 15th and June 1st of each year.  

Building Operations staff will continue to monitor weather forecasts to determine the best time to have the system shut down for the season. Residents will be notified when this takes place.
