Beautiful campus and buildings. Very green. Don't forget to step into Hart House and have a beer and a bite. The Chinese food truck outside Robarts library has been around for ages and offers great food. Many hot dog stands too. Parking was around $5-$8 for 4 hours (can't remember exactly).

An absolute gorgeous campus and a complete gem in the heart of Toronto! I couldn't believe I was still in the city. Each building was unique and stunning in its own right.

Beautiful campus. Old architecture. Gorgeous and peaceful area to walk around in. An oasis amid the bustle of the city. And the new aqypuatic centre built for PanAm - fantastic!

The campus is open and has some nice buildings and parks, but it is near to the Spadina area and is thus located in a non scenic area. It is worth a visit just if you are in the area.

Nice park to walk around, have a picnic or just sit with a book, quiet and peaceful. I recommand going through but maybe not out of your way to visit it.

I walk to the campus all the time.it is better to walk through the campus than on the road! Many grassy area are perfect for a picnics or enjoy the sun in summer. There are a few halls also open to publics and the rare books library that you can go to. A place not just for UT students

Beautiful campus, which reminded me of our Ivy-League schools in the US. We went during summer and I'm sure it is more spectacular in the fall. My boys enjoyed running around and soaking up campus life!

one of the best schools in the world, this university offers free tours for prospective students; registration is available via website, but walk-ins are welcome, based on our experience. they have up top three tours a day, incl some Saturdays.

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.
