13T - New Meets Old - U of T St George Campus

29 May 2020 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

3 Unstructured Learning Hours

With more than 150 years of architectural history, the University of Toronto’s St. George campus is without a doubt one of the most unique and remarkable architectural collections in Canada.  Home to over 80 heritage-designated buildings, this historical campus though is far from a museum. With just over 90,000 students, as well as thousands of faculty and staff, the University is a city that is continuously growing and evolving—requiring new buildings, retrofits, and renovations to keep up with its changing population.

This walking tour explores how architects have worked around, added to, repaired, adapted, and sometimes even relocated some of the university’s earliest structures. Learn about the unique challenges and opportunities that arise when dealing with heritage structures. Highlights in this tour include the Royal Ontario Museum, the Royal Conservatory of Music, Robarts Library, and One Spadina Crescent. 

This tour has significant walking.

All tours will depart from the Hotel X lobby. Please gather at least 15 minutes prior to your tour time.
