The University was created in 1827 so their building are some of the oldest in Toronto. The roundabout by Convocation Hall is unique.
I've worked in Higher Education in the UK where we have some beautiful buildings, but this campus is easily comparable to the best. Ivy covered buildings, beautiful halls/college quads, and plenty of public use buildings. In particular I'd recommend you walk around Front Campus, up under Soldier's Tower, up to Trinity College, at the very least.
University of Toronto is the largest university in Canada, and is also one of the most prestigious in the world. Even if you're not studying there, you should still go there just to admire its stunning architecture and observe the student life.
The winter is beautiful, the summer is great but the fall is the best time to see the University grounds. The changing of the leaves is something to see set against the old and new buildings throughout. Easy to walk around and access from all directions. It's a large campus so easy to find new things to see every time... More
Many different styles of buildings...many very old such as Convocation Hall. Do have a peak at the Great Hall. Lots of trees and flowers during the season. Campus right downtown near Government Buildings and a lovely place to walk.
We loved the ambience and the down town settings,of purse driving is cumbersome because of the traffic congestion,
I spent around an hour walking around the grounds. There are some nice buildings to see. First college campus I've been to that actually has ivy growing on the walls. There are nice places to take pictures. I imagine I would have liked it better if I had a guide.
I know in Europe there are alot of schools which exist only in name. People use them to get Visas. This is definitely not one. There's alot of green. Pretty buildings. Alot of sports and people and things going on. I'm a doctor not a student, damnit. What am I supposed to say. It's pretty and crowded. I wouldnt go... More
the buildings are easily explored and one can get lost in their charm quite easily. Hart House alone is a place I could easily look at for booking a business meeting, a friendly gatherin or for taking artistic photographs.
