The university's Ulife web page is a great way to find out about all the extra-curricular activities at the University of Toronto. The University also offers a large number of student services to support all students, including those on exchange.
All three campuses offer unique student cultures and a tremendous range of activities including frequent musical, dramatic and arts events. There are also campus- and college-based newspapers, bulletin services and radio stations. And of course, exchange students are welcome to participate in any of the University's more than 300 recognized student organizations.
On the St. George campus, Hart House is a cultural, recreational and athletic centre. For many students, this is their favourite building at U of T. It features an art gallery, concert hall, library, photography club, lounges, music room, debates room, dining rooms, snack bar, pub, pool, fitness rooms, retail shop, hair salon, meeting rooms and theatre. Hart House also runs a working farm outside of the city. There are organized seasonal trips to the farm. Students may also reserve it themselves, if interested. Information about Hart House in general can be found at the Hart House website or by calling the Hall Porters' Desk at 416-978-2452.
All three campuses at U of T feature athletic facilities which exchange students can make use of. In addition to the athletic centre at Hart House, the St. George campus also houses the so named Athletic Centre which is an enormous facility with spaces and programs for students at all levels of physical skill and activity. It offers fitness classes and opportunities to participate in a variety of intramural and inter-collegiate sports. The athletic facilities at Mississauga and Scarborough campuses also offer a wide range of programs and work-out facilities.
A great way to meet other students is to get involved in any of the many activities and clubs that the university offers.
