This where I graduated! this is the place where some of the most successful people of Canada and even the world have studied. I am proud of this place. Another thing that makes it even better is the quality education and the not so dominant fraternity's.
The UofT campus is a mix of old historic buildings, interesting open spaces and some less attractive modern yet functional buildings. The Munk Centre is an interesting setting but my favorite is Hart House. It has many cultural events and has historical significance all on its own. It's worth a walk around. Also, check our the tribute to alumni who served in the two world wars to the west of the building.
Fascinating mix of traditional buildings and open space. Made me yearn for my university days, some time ago! Our visit was in mid October when we were also greeted with the full range of fall colours, which seemed to bring out the best in the old buildings. Definitely worth a visit.
The inner city campus is a charming, eclectic mish mash of architectural styles from neo Romanesque (University College 1870's), 1970's concrete fortress (Robarts Library- see rare book room), Victorian colleges (St. Hildas,St Michaels International student centre,etc), and more modern additions. Take a walking tour or just wander as it's throbbing with life and filled with parks. Many free concerts and lectures.
Amazing exhibit of Judaica at the Fisher Rare Book Library - we learned a lot and saw gorgeous illuminated ancient manuscripts with great explanations of their significance
UofT's downtown campus is rather striking: It is close to the city centre but also includes so many lovely old buildings and green areas. Walking around campus you see so many college buildings that remind you of old English universities, as well as several newer builds. The students and eateries also reflect the multicultural student body that is typical of Canada.
