U of T's Hidden Gems

Excited to discover campus? We thought we'd give you a head start. Vic's Orientation Exec will be showing you some of our favourite underrated spots on campus. Keep an eye out for our Hidden Gems series to find all the best places to take those #StartUofT and #ExploreUofT Instas this fall.


McLennan Telescope

Did you know that you can see stars and planets even in downtown Toronto?! Gabby gives us an inside look at the space domes at McLennan in this fifth installment of our Hidden Gems series. Check out the domes yourself on one of U of T's Astro Tours this fall! 

Earth-Science Rooftop Greenhouses

Who needs Allan Gardens anyway? Melinda shows us U of T's own tropical paradise in this fourth installment of our Hidden Gems series. The rooftop greenhouses at the Earth Sciences Centre are open to the public 9-5 Monday through Friday. 

Hart House
Fitness rooms

Not every class at U of T is listed in the course calendar. In the third installment of our Hidden Gems series, Artimes shows us one of Hart House's fitness rooms. All three gyms on the St. George campus have a variety of registered and free drop-in fitness classes waiting for you this fall! 

Robarts Library
8th floor

Think Robarts is just a giant stone turkey housing an endless maze of stacks and all-nighters? Think again. In the second instalment of our Hidden Gems series, Orientation Exec Gabe shows us a quiet study nook waiting for you on the 8th floor: the Richard Charles Lee Canada-Hong Kong Library. 

Knox College

Take a look at the first installment of our Hidden Gems series as Zahavah takes us to her favourite spot on campus: Knox College Quad. This little nook of U of T is filled with vibrant greens and gorgeous archways, complete with tables to relax with a book!
