“I feel as if I have a community, but just a few steps outside and I’m in the heart of the city. You certainly don’t feel like you’re alone, you feel like you’re a part of a living system.”

Before the University of Toronto came to be, there was what we now call Taddle Creek – a waterway that began near the intersection of Davenport Road and Bathurst Street, snaked through the St. George campus and then made its way down to Lake Ontario.

The creek was a gathering place for Indigenous groups, including the Huron-Wendat, the Seneca and, most recently, the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation.

With European colonization, the region became the city of Toronto and continued to grow, leading to the creek’s having been buried underground.


“The cool thing about the aerospace program at U of T is that it is off campus. It was like a small community in itself, where you have the opportunity to interact with a very diverse group of people studying diverse initiatives.”

The college system

All students within the Faculty of Arts & Science on the St. George campus are affiliated with one of seven colleges. These colleges have deep roots in the history of the University of Toronto; the college system dates back to the earliest days of the university and remains one of its distinctive features. The colleges are a home base for their students and provide the advantages of a closer-knit community experience within a large research university.
