Three Campus Experiences, One University

The University of Toronto has three campuses: St. George in downtown Toronto, U of T Mississauga to the west, and U of T Scarborough to the east. Together, they attract top faculty and students, produce groundbreaking research, and graduate leaders who revamp the world. When choosing your campus, consider program and course offerings as well as campus size, location, character, and community.
