The campus is gigantic, but has a lot of lovely spots to see, mostly in central campus - King's College Road, (beautiful old buildings) but don't miss the buildings just a bit further north off Hoskins Rd, like Trinity College and Massey College, and finally further to the east, the houses off St. Joseph St. -Elmsley Place.

I visited the university area on Sunday just looking at the various buildings from outside, however the impression I can report is of a good quality.

What a walk...from historic Philosopher's Walk South to Hart House taking King's College Circle past Knox College to the historic University of Toronto Convocation Hall. It's like taking a stroll in a century old place of higher learning - absolutely delightful.

The University campus was beautiful. The reflecting pool with seating around was nice. There were arches above the pool with light for night time. Also a skating booth which I suppose is open in the winter months. The buildings were modern and campus looked clean.

A place to see for the traveler. First of all University College is an excellent example of the Gothic Revival in the Norman style and has the most photographed doorway in Toronto. In addition the Gothic style interior includes a Great Hall, Chapter House and a Dragon newel post also famous in the city. University College also has a ghost.... More

Went on the tour of the University. Very pretty campus. Wear comfortable walking shoes - tour was two hours of walking from end to end. If it is hot - bring your own water.

UofT is comprised of 7 colleges & has 3 campuses. The downtown campus is huge & has the best colleges associated with the university. There is no other Uni in the world that can compare to the size/scale of UofT. Each college has its own charm, but the best is Victoria College as its right near Bay/Bloor.

We were trying to get to UofT by car and do a tour of the grounds, but there was so much construction around the area it was almost impossible. Would have been better as pedestrians.
