Our friends took us to look around the university to compare the differences between the Canadian buildings and those we're used to in the UK. The first thing that struck me was that you can just walk into the buildings without being checked. The next thing was the size of the place, the campus and the buildings are huge, with some lecture theatres holding about 700 pupils apparently. Perhaps because it was summer and there were no students it seemed rather intimidating and unwelcoming due to the size.
However I did think the sports amenities, such as the two gyms, ice rinks, skating track and squash courts were amazing and a nice addition for those who wanted to keep active. The Mack Hall area with the on site dentist, doctor, sports physic and food hall (3 Tim Hortons seemed a little excessive, but apparently it's to keep queues down) were all great and meant that students wouldn't have to venture off campus for anything. The library with computer stations with split screens is also a great idea allowing students to read from one and type on the other.
Overall it must be a nice place to study with all the things you could need on one site and large open landscaped spaces. it is also clever that the university like the city is all connected for the cold winter days when students won't want to venture outside.
