There is no place like the University of Toronto. Apart from working there, the whole campus was very diverse, in culture, architecture, athletic centres, libraries, walking tours, food, so many wonderful things.

Some very nice old buildings and so close to the city. A 15 minute walk from Front Street and you are in another time and place...city noise drops away.

I stayed for 4 nights in Wilson hall dorm rooms on Willcocks ave. after getting over the initial shock of shared bathrooms, no tv and no room service. It was an enjoyable stay. Comfortable beds, spacious rooms at a great price.

Beautiful campus. Lots to read, learn and experience. Peaceful place to stroll and explore around. You may join a tour or simply just wander around.

Education is the backbone of a nation which Canada deserve. When I travel in any country I try to visit their educational Institutions where I learn their culture, behavior, policies, history, and overall next generation vision and mission. I believe personally all of us should keep an University campus at our travel plan. Canada never compromise with their world-class education.

The campus appears in a number of movies and it is easy to recognize why. There is a mixture of buildings reminiscent of universities in England, New England (USA) and Pennsylvania.While on campus there are several buildings you can visit and I had a wonderful time doing so. It is a refreshingly serene oasis tucked inside a bustling city. Perhaps... More

When walking from Mt. Sinai to Bloor Street Cinema, I cut through the university. I'd forgotten how beautiful it is. It's like being in a beautiful British city, say Edinburgh. Trees and old buildings and young people walking, sitting on the grass or cycling. If you're down town Toronto, it's worth a walk round the grounds!

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.
