HHCC Fall 2022 Announcements & Schedule

Hello everyone!

Welcome to September and the start of a new semester! Here’s a quick run through of what we’re planning this academic year.

Casual Play Fridays

Every Friday this semester, we will be open every Friday from 4pm-11pm except for holidays. Everyone, regardless of UofT student status can drop by to play chess for FREE at the Hart House Reading Room.   


This year, the Hart House Chess Club membership is FREE for all undergraduates and graduates of UofT. Students must register with the Hart House Hub (front-desk) to become a member. A separate non-student HHCC membership can be purchased for alumni and all other members of the community (special prices for those under 29 or over 65) at the Hart House Hub.
