My husband and I visited the university on recent trip to Toronto after finding out some history on it during a bus tour there. There are apparently over 65,000 students that attend and it is massive, the grounds themselves are beautiful, but just to see the lovely old buildings is well worth a walk around the campus. They have several... More

Today I was attending a function at Massey College, very probably the best building on the St . George Campus, and had a renewed opportunity to wander about the campus for a while. The buildings are a very mixed bag, some distinguished, others not. Sidney Smith is an architectural disaster, for example, and the Chemistry and Zoology Buildings are no... More

Yes, still there are many people who would like to see this university and its academic programs transferred to their cites. This university location is more than just another college town I assure you because something called greatness or academic excellence can be found here in varied abundance for sustaining the strength of many academic disciplines and programs. The heart... More

. . . brought me to U of T's Rotman School of Business for a week. This was my first trip to Toronto and the campus was a great place to form a great first impression. The area was safe, beautiful and the students and staff went out of their way to be friendly and helpful. The academics were rigorous... More

But, perhaps it was October, change of leave colors, just was beautiful. Loved the classic European or more English look buildings. First I did not think it was an University but a visit to an old town somewhere in England... Lots of greenery... maple leaves- so colorful. Charming school.

The U of T campus is one of my favourite places to stroll around downtown. The buildings are some of the most ornate in Toronto with Gothic and Romanesque architecture. There are many green spaces and gardens to walk through as well.

Came to Toronto to visit our daughter who just began graduate studies there. Impressive campus. Very busy student body. Some of the older buildings we looked at were architecturally very interesting. Will revisit definitely and report more.

This is a beautiful campus in the centre of the city. It's very peaceful and tranquil. The place seems very classy but not snobbish. I enjoyed my casual walk through the place on a nice clear day. That's critical. If the weather is bad, it would not be much fun! The areas nearby the campus are also worth exploring by... More

This is a gorgeous campus, located right in the city centre. Must be a great experience to actually study at this campus. Beautiful buildings and close to all the attractions of downtown Toronto.

A nice place to walk around, and enjoy the campus that's full of life, almost in the city centre and easy access to public transportation.
