The Basics

With a history dating back to 1827, the University of Toronto—replete with sculptures, stone buildings, and lush green spaces—is a central feature of the bustling city. Most travelers happen upon the university while hanging out downtown, while some stop by on a hop-on hop-off bus tour or a small-group walking tour. If you’re in the mood for something spooky, a ghost-themed tour of the campus is a fun option.

We absolutely enjoyed this tour of Toronto and wish we had one more day to return to places we visited. Our guide, Terrence, made the tour presenting Toronto's history, facts and taking us to interesting areas around the city. Bikes and routes are safe. We highly recommend this tour. The hours flew by!

When to Get There

Most travelers prefer to visit when the weather is pleasant, in late spring, summer, and early fall; Toronto winters are typically cold and quite snowy. The campus is busiest when students return to class in fall, and you’ll find fewer crowds in summer.

Visiting the Royal Ontario Museum

Just north of the University of Toronto’s St. George campus sits the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM), one of Ontario’s premier art and culture institutions. Explore the ROM’s collection of more than 13 million objects showcased on four floors of gallery space. To save time at the entrance, prebook your ticket.
