I'm not sure why U of T is listed as a tourist attraction. It's a university. There is no actual campus. U of T is comprised of dozens of buildings spread out all over downtown Toronto. What I found of particular interest is the football stadium. It's about 1/20 the size of university football stadiums in the south. No grooming... More

I went to Mac, but U of T houses the legal library as well as a few research libraries I needed to access. What a beautiful campus! I was really blown over by the foliage and the buildings. Their library is the best in the area, and they're one of the top schools in many programs (but not mine, which... More

The campus is beautiful. The sidewalks are wide and there are food stands for a bite so it is a great walk from downtown or Chinatown to the ROM or other points north.

In places, this sprawling campus is pretty, old and green. The variety of Victorian and neogothic buildings and corner gardens is quiet charming and would make nice pictures. The Soldiers Tower is particularly lovely. Other places are brutalist and to my eye, ugly! Robarts library is one of the most frightening I've ever seen. (I am sure some love it.)... More

Their down Toronto campus covers numerous blocks in the heart of Toronto. Very easy to access to by any public transportations and subway. The architectural details of their buildings are individual landmark.

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.
