Located in the centre of the city (the main campus) you will find buildings from the beginning of Canada's existence. A nice piece of history - but bring your walking shoes :)

After going to Bloor area [dissapointing] & the depressing Gayborhood? it was a pleasure to go this neighborhood. Great mix of old & new architecture! Contemporary buildings were aesthetically pleasing ,as opposed to the Soviet style worker housing you usually see near or on campuses.

We walked around the campus of Toronto University one evening. The buildings are historic and very interesting. The campus is beautifully set out with the backdrop of the city skyline behind it. Just something really good to do after a good meal in a nearby restaurant.

Well probably after visiting Harvard we are not that easy to be impressed. Also Michigan university in Ann Arbor way way more beautiful than the one in Toronto.

professors are more interesting in his/her own research than teaching. I guess good to visit, but spend your tuition dollars elsewhere.

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.
