UofT has a beautiful downtown campus. It is really lovely to walk around and Philosopher's Walk is one of the nicest place. There are many beautiful buildings and Hart House is my favourite. Go on a tour or take a self-guided tour. It is worth your time. Many coffee shops and cafes on campus and nearby.

The old buildings. The architecture. Have a student tell you the story of the ghost Ivan that haunts university college. Amazing local folklore.

As a UofT student, I love my campus. As a former tour guide I often tried to get people to see what I was talking about. Try this route: Start from inside Museum Station in the subway. Exit on the side that says Royal Ontario Museum. Walk north from Queen's Park Cres. to Bloor St. W. Without crossing any roads,... More

Although I haven't gone there to study, the structure, the atmosphere, the staff, the place, the university, all seems to be perfect. The buildings around there are beautiful.

They must have courses in old world charm and decorum here. What a treat to see young people serious about studies and decorum among the beautiful old-world charm libraries and study halls. The creaky wood and floors were charming.
