Magnificent old buildings with pathways off to even more stunning architecture. Busy with students, professors and athletes finding their way around on foot or bicycle. Many nooks and crannies to sit and ponder.

I like UofT because it's huge and you basically get lost trying to figure this place out. Getting lost can be fun sometimes. I like the architecture of UofT, it has a European feel. Great place for a photo shoot even!

Worth just spending a few hours wandering around the environs and appreciating the many facets of the UofT and its beautiful architecture. From the Varsity Blues sportsfield to the various colleges to the library and Queens Park, you are in for a treat!

During the summer I love walking through the University of Toronto area, beautiful green areas and stunning architecture that can be hard to find elsewhere in this city.

Went to see Into the Woods with my children and we had the perfect evening. Amazing show, great talent in a charming little theatre in historic Hart House! We will be back...

I'm not a student so I have no idea what it's like to go here. I was simply a tourist going for walk and I found myself mesmerized by the architecture and the vibrancy of the streets surrounding it. Coming from the west it was nice to see such ornate architecture.

Beautiful university where my husband's cousin got married. We also stayed at a hotel nearby so we were able to explore the area a bit. It's immaculate and a rather large university with lots of old buildings looking like cathedrals.

I understand they are also trying to go vehicular-free which will enable you to see the beautiful buildings and grounds

We went to the bookstore to purchase some clothing in the book store. Great choices and designs. It was worth the trip.

The library here is absolutely amazing. Not much noise, everyone seems focused on their work, the energy here is quiet inviting helps you get down to business. THis is my go to place to get things done. Find a place to park is the only drawback but for those who take the bus, this is moot.

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
