The campus is really nice when the weather is good, but once winter sets in it gets very cold and people try to avoid staying outside for extended periods of time
College Sophomore 2013-10-26T21:50:40Z
There are lots of libraries on campus that vary so its easy to find one you like.

There are sororities and fraternities but i know nothing about them.

Obviously people do take drugs, but I wouldn't say there's any pressure to if you don't hang out with those people

Students come from all over the world. I think the population is more reflective of the actual world population, with many Europeans, Asians, and Middle Easterners on campus. There are also many religious activities to accommodate members of different religions, and to educate those with other religions.

The teachers are a mix between apathetic, lazy, and unhelpful, or amazingly talented and very interested in your career.
College Senior 2013-08-23T17:07:12Z
The program is great, but the school doesn't offer classes regularly. It's going to take me an extra year to graduate because the required classes were not offered enough.
College Senior 2013-08-23T17:04:49Z
There are many delicious types of ethnic cuisine available within walking distance of the school.

I am at University College. My experience has been amazing in terms of classes and professors. I had the opportunity to enroll in a seminar Trin One, which challenged me in many aspects. My professors although are deeply engaged in their research have genuine concern for teaching and always offered help and are very approachable. The fact they are involved in research and other organizations is more of an advantage than a disadvantage because they are able to share their experience in their field. My only problem comes with the differences between domestic and international students. Not only it is significantly harder to obtain financial aid as an international student, but opportunities for research abroad are restricted only for Canadian residents or citizens. This I found limits the experience in some aspects, but on the bright side the vast presence of different clubs and chapters allowed me to get involved with organizations that pursuit similar goals as me, and share common interest and provide the opportunity to conduct research on a more personal basis. I was lucky to encounter good and devoted teacher assistants, but I heard from friends that some are not willing to provide help or do not show concern for individual learning or personal circumstances that might difficult the learning process. Overall academics are great but because of the recurrent complains about some teacher assistants and my experience with limitations as an international student I give U of T an "A".

Health & Safety:
I find no issues with the safety here. When there is an issue, the administration and the campus police deal with is effectively.

Guys & Girls:
People here take great care of their appearances, and most people are very stylish and cosmopolitan. They are also very motivated and hard working, so it is a great environment both for studying and going out.
College Junior 2012-11-28T14:36:04Z
Smoking and drinking are fairly prevalent in certain crowds, but many students do not take part. There is no pressure to take part if one is not interested.
College Sophomore 2012-11-20T09:25:17Z
U of T is a graduate school. Undergrad profs are bad and not worth your time really. They are there to do research and they are good at that but some of them lack some serious teaching abilities.
College Sophomore 2012-11-19T20:28:15Z
They are concerned if there is any illegal activity but warnings are given. unless you publicize what your doing.
College Sophomore 2012-11-13T00:54:09Z
Since it is located downtown, there is a variety of access to shopping and convenience, however, since there a lot of people results in few parking lots. Safety is really not a reason unless the student is out at a very late time.
College Sophomore 2012-11-13T00:50:56Z
It really depends on the college in the university. The newer the college, the better the amenities since it has more of a modern look. Hoever, colleges like Trinity is a lot more older, gives a classical and traditional look, but has poor residence atomsphere
College Sophomore 2012-11-13T00:48:12Z
Lots of clubs and pubs by the school. Even during frosh, undergraduate students were invited to a pub.
College Sophomore 2012-11-10T17:12:19Z
There are many transportation choices around here, including subways, buses.

It's in downtown. The people here are from all every corner of the world.
College Sophomore 2012-11-10T17:04:18Z
It's very difficult to find a off-campus residence since there are too many students here.
College Sophomore 2012-11-10T04:25:26Z
We have really good facilities, state-of-the-art and everything. But this school is an academic one. People simply do not care past the first varsity game and even then only if it's hockey/football.
If you're an athlete though you will love the things we have here though.
College Sophomore 2012-11-10T04:22:20Z
UofT is pretty much asians, asians, and more asians with a lot of brown people mixed in.
UofT is in the middle of Toronto, one of the most diversified cities in the world so it's logical to assume that UofT would reflect that. While there is a lot of diversity, a lot of that nowadays seems to be mostly international kids for east asia.
LGBT wise or whoever might be included in that group are pretty well represented. This is Canada and if there's one thing they pound into your head during frosh week is too not be a douchebag. Like they really do, especially at UC frosh. the Sexual Diversity Center and a drop-in for lgbt youths to just chill.
College Sophomore 2012-11-10T04:18:43Z
Well there a 7 colleges, each with about 2-3 residence buildings and residence building choices depend on the college you choose.
There's traditional dorm-style and new suite style on campus. Trininity, Victoria and STM are the castle-like residences that are really pretty but kinda pricey. Uc has both an older residence with only double rooms with massive basement parties and the newer building with paper thin walls Uc is also right in the middle of campus and comes with the guarantee of healthy social life.
New College is kinda always forgotten cause it's pretty much under-the-radar but it has nice big room, really good food and a decent social atmosphere and they now provide free laundry, something very very rare and precious.
Suite-style residences are in Woodsworth and Inis, with the only difference being the actual layout of the apartment and they're also the cheapest.
All residences come with their own pride, events, social council and pros/cons so really it's what you make of it. Suite-style is cheaper because there is no mandatory meal-plan, but you can get one separately from the university of just load up on flex dollars.

I'm not sure about too many student discounts, but you can definitely find a lot to choose from for not too much money all around downtown. Lots in walking distance, and tonnes more just a short trip on the public transit. There is so much of the City to explore! Mostly everything is pretty affordable, but King and Queen St can cost more, and definitely Yorkville area costs more, except for Hemingway's which has a nice deck opposite the movie theatre. When I felt like a fancy drink and a view, I would always go to the rooftop bar at the Hyatt, but don't plan to order more than an appetizer to eat. The view of the City and the ROM is incredible at night. For Asian, I love love love Real Thailand at Bloor/Spadina. Everyone seemed to like Spring Rolls, on Yonge, but I felt like it was hit or miss there depending on who was in the kitchen. Spadina is where the REAL Asian food and markets are, just be careful you don't order something crazy with eyeballs staring at you. Good, fast lunch on Bloor by Queen's Park, at the Chinese place above the egg place (Over Easy), and the Pho upstairs from the Chinese place - (it's called China Garden, and the place upstairs from that is just Pho, or Pho Hung). Both very very tasty places, for under or around $10/person. Over Easy is nice, but I felt like a little pricey for breakfast.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
