“Visitor or student?”
Reviewed 12 June 2012

Well, I've been a slave here for the past 6 years. Actually, it is a nice campus, so from the perspective of a visitor, it'd be a cool spot to hang out for half a day. The old buildings are really quite beautiful during the warmer part of the year.

“Absolutely: because of the reputation”
Reviewed 9 June 2012

Worths a nice walk and read signs in each building. Important to give small donations to support the University.

“Beautiful campus in the summer with lots going on”
Reviewed 8 June 2012

If you're looking for a calm and relaxing summer afternoon, go for a walk at the University of Toronto (Queen's Park area). U of T is a massive University with a myriad of buildings scattered all over downtown Toronto. But I recommend going to University College (U of T is divided into colleges) where you'll find a big field, beautiful old and historic buildings, and the infamous Convocation Hall. You'll likely walk by people throwing frisbees, playing soccer, wedding photo shoots, or maybe even a graduation ceremony depending on when you are there. Overall, t's a really nice afternoon spent in one of the best universities in Canada.

“Inspiring place to be”
Reviewed 6 June 2012

University of Toronto's Victorian buildings around King's Circle are an awe-inspiring sight no matter the season. Make sure you step into Hart House for a closer look. It makes for a very pleasant walk when you are in downtown Toronto (and the bars in the area are cheap to cater to poor students ;)
