It's a very nice/beautiful campus. Well, maybe not so much the building where I went to school (OISE which is more utilitarian) but if you walk through the center it's just got those old school uni vibes.

We walked around the outside this university while on our way to Casa Loma, and we were quite impressed with what we saw. The architecture was beautiful.

I'm kind of partial because I did two advanced degrees here, but it's a beautiful leafy campus oasis in the middle of the city. Explore the hidden quads of Trinity, Vic, St. Mikes, University College, and spend time on Philosopher's Walk. Love this place.

The faux medieval architecture of this place gives an enchanting flare to the downtown Toronto chore. It is nothing new when coming from older cities, but the venue is photogenic and very pleasant to walk around. Lot sod engagement and wedding photos are taken here. Occasionally, there are concerts on their gardens.

When you walked in, you feel like you are back to school once again. It is an old architecture which is beautifully designed more for history than for students. The interior designs are intricate and pleasing to the ambience. You can walk around freely without any problems.

Absolutely amazing and beautiful campus. After having been to many of the old and picturesque universities in the UK, UofT is better than most. Its a great place for a walk. You feel like you are in a uni town and not right in the middle of a city. The buildings are beautiful

Walking around the discovery district is a great experience! There's such an atmosphere around there... and the buildings are amazing, old and beautiful. This place would definitely take your breath away!

Beautiful and quite, public transportation makes it so easy to go and move around. They hosted a lot of games for the PanAmerican event. Very clean, everyone around was friendly.

Worth a visit to see the architecture. That's when Toronto built attractive buildings before it decided to see how it could build the ugliest modern condo buildings imaginable.

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood 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.
