U of T St. George
U of T St. George is the oldest and most urban of the U of T campuses. Students here convene in historic lecture theaters and college residences, make discoveries in contemporary research laboratories and explore in Canada’s largest academic library. They discuss news of the day on Philosopher’s Walk and work on a student newspaper in the same building where the famous aviator Amelia Earhart once volunteered as a nurse. Out in the college courtyards, you are just as likely to see drama students rehearsing black box productions as you are to see astronomy students working on calculations for the observatory.
The U of T St. George campus is a vital part of the Toronto cultural landscape. Sunday Concerts at Hart House feature internationally-renowned musicians, the annual Nuit Blanche festival illuminates the campus during a dusk-to-dawn event and the Toronto International Film Festival brings famous filmmakers and celebrities on campus to screen contemporary cinema. The Multi-Faith Centre provides a place for spiritual practice and inter-cultural dialogue where students can attend speaking engagements such as that with His Holiness the Dalai Lama or be part of various religious celebrations.
The vibrancy of Toronto draws students to the U of T St. George campus from around the world. The campus literally wraps around the Royal Ontario Museum and is just blocks from the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO). Busy students make themselves at home in the eclectic cafes and pubs of the Annex neighbourhood. They also join the trend-setters of Queen Street West and the many neighbouring international communities brimming with traditions all their own.
