We were winding down our day of walking from the harbor to the university and couldn't take enough pictures of the beautiful old buildings (amidst some newer ones). The Victorian architecture was so beautiful, and the setting was so picturesque we have many photos to sort through for wall art. While we didn't stop in any of the museums, we... More

The University of Toronto is a huge school spanning blocks and blocks within the city of Toronto. It is a beautiful school and certainly worth investigating if you are looking into colleges for the near future.

Strolled the grounds for about 45 minutes and enjoyed the varied architecture. It's a world onto itself and well worth seeing.

Wow, a beautiful university! Thinkers way and go behind the huge church to take pics as if you are in Paris. This area transitions off into the Museum district and boy is the architecture amazing!

The campus is much like Ivy League schools, or my alma mater, Duke University. There are pleasant paths to stroll along and quaint niches to explore. Worth a visit, even a quick one.

Directions once I got to the front doors of the ABI lab were concise, distinct and calming to get to the floor and office where I needed to go. The information desk person was very helpful - I was running late so was a bit uncertain about my reception.

Beautiful buildings around here, everywhere you look. Norman Romanesque revival, Gothic revival, mid century modern, neoclassicism. If you're into architourism at all, there's much here to see and admire. Plus it's fun to look around Canada's arguably most important university, in the eyes of the rest of the world.

Unlike so many older buildings, U of T's Convocation Hall continues to perform its intended function very well; capably handling the graduation ceremonies of thousands upon thousands of students each year. We attended the industrial engineering convocation recently. This architecturally noteworthy circular building on the south west corner of King's Circle has stood the test of time and still looks...
