“I go to School here LOL”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2012

If you're not a student here, There isn't much to do in terms of entertainment... However the buildings are beautiful (check out University College [my top favourite], Convocation hall, Knox college, and my second favourite Robarts library) and they make for nice photographs!! Aside from that, hmm lots of library's but I haven't had a chance to personally check them out. The U of T bookstore is quite nice (though some stuff is a tad overpriced unless you hit the September opening sale on sweaters and such). Wouldn't reccomend visiting this place in the morning or at lunch (as St.Geroge street is crowded with students who are busily going to class or getting lunch) but I'd think the evening or afternoon would be a good time. Also something i found out about recently, food truck Fridays which is organized by UeaT, the locations change but it's basically a whole line of food trucks you can order from (they even had a cupcake food truck O__O)

“A Quiet Oasis in Central Toronto”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2012

The university complex is like a large park very close to the centre of the city. It is a lovely place for a stroll away from the noise of downtown Toronto and on a sunny day it's terrific.

“Beautiful campus”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2012

Great for a wander in this dynamic city if you fancy getting out of the hustle and bustle of downtown Yonge and Dundas, Start off at College street entrance onto the front campus of University College and head up through the campus before heading over to Trinity College for some beautiful architecture in the middle of this great city.

“A gem in Toronto”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2012

If you visit Toronto, you must definitely go see U of T. This is one of the few "older" architectural pieces among modern buildings of the area. I would recommend going inside Convocation Hall, Hart House and University College, they are open during the school year. In Hart house they sell some sandwiches and other snacks at lunch hour. Not many tourists visit these unfortunately. University College is definetely worth a visit, it has gorgeous Victorian decor in the West and East Hall where students write exams. You can take some gorgeous pictures by the arch of the University College. Close to museum station, there is Victoria college and few other buildings that are worth to visit. Surroundings are especially pretty in the summer.
