A fun experience was recently had at this wonderful educational establishment. By chance, we heard of its Canine Cognition Lab. Having a young pup who fit the profile for "research dog" I enjoyed watching a session of her being tested. To get to the "testing" we were led through courtyards never seen and into basements that would not have been... More

One of the most architecturally interesting buildings on the St George Campus, UC is well worth a tour. From the famous griffin curled into a newel post at the foot of the east staircase to the great halls and stained glass windows, as well as the cloisters and gargoyles, you will find something to marvel at at every turn.

The downtown campus has some of Toronto's best architecture. If you go on a weekday, University College is open, and it's like stepping into Hogwarts. Hart House is open on the weekend, and I'd recommend going to see the Great Hall and walking up the Romeo and Juliet stairs. The Trinity College quad is also another must-see.

If you are planning to see the UFT campus and the surrounding area make sure to take public transportation as parking is quite difficult to find and really expensive. Worth to explore and see the old building and the Robarts Library for me the biggest library that I ever seen. Enjoy.

I was invited to this campus to give a talk. Very nice place to stay and study. A lot of Asian students there.

TU has been an inspiration to me and many of my friends. Aged buildings alone make architecture enthusiasts something to enjoy. Many theaters offer plays of all sorts. The University community is very active and present to all who visit this fine institution and gem of Toronto.

Located in the centre of the city, a walk through the campus is a must. I like the varied architecture from the fantastic Leslie Dan Pharmacy building to the old University College your imagination is stimulated.

We toured the campus and especially Trinity College with our granddaughter. She pointed out how much the dining room resembled the dining hall at Hogwarts.

This was just an average place to be in. The field was ok to walk on and the surrounding buildings served as good backgrounds to some pictures.

Near the Royal Ontario Museum at Spadina and Bloor, the University of Toronto campus is definitely worth a look. A variety of architectural styles and heritage buildings in a park-like setting just a few steps away from a major intersection with shops and restaurants. Bring your camera.

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
