ONE UNIVERSITY, THREE CAMPUSES
The college system
All students within the Faculty of Arts & Science on the downtown Toronto (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.
