Please be aware that from Tues 23 Aug to Mon 5 Sept the Innis Café will be closed for kitchen renovations. The Café will resume (new and improved) operations on Tues 6 Sept.
This construction will specifically affect the kitchen area behind the Café service counter and the basement immediately below.
The seating area, the single accessible washroom, and access to the commuter lounge and student society offices will NOT be affected. This includes zero disruptions to the electrical or plumbing systems in these adjacent spaces. Please refer to the image below.
Innis Café owners, Gunash & Ali, and the administration of the College thank you for your understanding as we make these upgrades to our facility. Please direct any questions to Innis College CAO, Cameron Clairmont.
On June 23rd, Innis College joined offices across UofT’s three campuses in the second annual #DisplayYourPride event! 120+ balloons later we are definitely feeling the Pride (and a little light-headed!). This event was organized by the UofT Positive Space Committee. Click here to learn more about their important work in bringing inclusivity to campus.
Attention new Innis students! This September, your Innis College Student Society (ICSS) is bringing you “INto the Wild” — Orientation Week 2016! Click here for more information and to register.

University College, Junior Common Room
CALLING ALL CREATIVE MINDS!
The Spectatorial presents a FUN-draising event, in collaboration with The UC Gargoyle, to celebrate art and artists and the trials and tribulations they faced in becoming the artists they are today!
Do you write? Did you write? If so, The Spectatorial invite you to dredge up your most embarrassing past writing (angsty break-up poetry, deep teenage thoughts, Harry Potter fan-fiction…) to share with a bunch of people who definitely know where it came from – and have some of their own!
There will be a bake sale and FREE COFFEE and lots of other (super cool) things for sale that will raise money for the next issue of The Spectatorial. There is a pay-what-you-can admission: no one is turned away, but you will be entered into a raffle draw if you donate more than $2!
You can email firstname.lastname@example.org for a spot on the reader’s list, or message them on Facebook. You can find their Facebook page, and more information on the event here.
THURSDAY, APRIL 7TH
11AM – 3PM
Hart House, East Common Room
Have you ever lost yourself in a good book? Have you been transported by a well-told story? This is your chance to come face to face with people who have lived to tell those unforgettable stories – human books.
Though Toronto is one of the most diverse cities in the world, there is still a presence of discrimination, intolerance and prejudice. You are invited to talk to the “human books” about their experiences in Toronto, as a Black Muslim in the post-9/11 world, as a First Nations person in the city, or as a woman of colour running for office. Each person can be “checked out” – like a library book – for a period of 25 minutes for a one-on-one conversation.
You can register for this event online – here – or, feel free to drop in. You can check out their Facebook event page for additional information.
The “books” will be “checked out” on a first-come, first-served basis.
SATURDAY, APRIL 9TH at 8PM
