U of T Scarborough
The U of T Scarborough campus is a close-knit community and hub for research and hands-on learning. The Student Centre is the nucleus of student life on campus, where you can find a restaurant/bar, multi-faith prayer spaces and student clubs and media outlets. The Student Centre is also a living testament to the campus’s commitment to sustainability, and has been honoured with the City of Toronto’s Green Design Award. The Instructional Centre is a sleek modern structure that will be home to the highly competitive Bachelor of Business Administration program. When not in class, students can catch a Drama Society performance in the Leigha Lee Browne Theatre or an art exhibition in the Doris McCarthy Gallery.
The campus lies in the eastern third of Toronto and, at 22 kilometres from the city centre, is easily accessible by public transit. Scarborough boasts one of the most multicultural neighbourhoods in Canada, and has a unique heritage and history. The national broadcaster, CTV, is headquartered in Scarborough, contributing to its ongoing legacy as a centre of Canadian media, and film actors Mike Myers, Jim Carrey and Eric McCormack have all called Scarborough home. Scarborough is also home to the Toronto Zoo and the Nike Malvern Sports Complex, offering a variety of near-campus destinations to explore.
Scarborough has earned a reputation for being the greenest area of the GTA. It borders Lake Ontario and draws visitors to the beautiful Scarborough Bluffs, a 17-storey earthen cliff stretching 14 kilometres complete with natural beaches. The nearby Rouge Park is one of the few wilderness areas in South Central Ontario, and is open year-round with free admittance to its rustic hiking trails.
