“Definitely a School”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

I know in Europe there are alot of schools which exist only in name. People use them to get Visas. This is definitely not one.

There's alot of green. Pretty buildings. Alot of sports and people and things going on. I'm a doctor not a student, damnit. What am I supposed to say. It's pretty and crowded. I wouldnt go there unless I was a prospective student. Central Location -- right by Royal Ontario Museum.

“impressive campus”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

the buildings are easily explored and one can get lost in their charm quite easily. Hart House alone is a place I could easily look at for booking a business meeting, a friendly gatherin or for taking artistic photographs.

“beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

The University of toronto or U of T for short is a university campus spread out over more than 20square blocks of downtown toronto. The campus is stunningly beautiful. Very Green with old grey stone d mansions converted into classroom and admin buildings. It is like a huge green space or park. a great place to feel the energy of the students running to and from class and living the student life. It is a great place to just sit on the grass and do nothing. I think walking through the campus and looking at the architecture is a must do activity on any visit to the CIty of Toronto.
End your trip on university avenue and stroll over to Yorkville and enjoy a gelato.

“Gorgeous Building Architectures”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

The architecturfe of the buildings are quite charming.Some of them are very historical.Trinity College church is cool.Woodsworth Cafeteria is different because they are the only colleges of U of T who serves wine in the St. George Campus.Varsity stadium is always busy and fun to watch games like the Varsity Blues.
