As a U of T alumni, this is one place I love to spend time at. It's especially pretty in spring, summer and fall. A classic old university, full of tradition and glory. Beautiful

It is a great campus to appreciate different architectures. The campus is pretty big so be prepared to give yourself some time to walk around.

- Experience 6/10 - May be better in summer, large campus, but not so impressive, just like the other popular universities.

We were too late for an official tour, so we walked around the campus with our potential student teens. Lots of lovely old buildings mixed with new ones. Some huge and impressive libraries. Nice people. Clearly, students here (at the main downtown campus, not the two other campuses, which we didn't visit) can get a lot out of Toronto, too,... More

The campus is huge and in the middle of Toronto. Feel free to drive or bike through and explore some of the great architecture that the campus has to offer.

As tourists, nothing really there to see. We went to the Pharmacy building. It took me a little to find the restrooms.

If you get off at St George station on the bloor line, you can walk through the campus's of Uof T. The library is second to none and many of the buildings and faculties are all heritage buildings a must see!

A definite must see in Toronto, especially if you have a few hours to kill! I'd recommend (although I'm sure they wouldn't!) trying to blag your way around a few of the buildings - the insides are absolutely beautiful. The campus is stunning - well worth a walk on a wintery day.

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.
