We have some amazing spaces across all three campuses and invite everyone in the community to enjoy.

Community impact

Toronto and the surrounding region is consistently ranked as one of the most diverse urban centres in North America. Toronto attracts great businesses, restaurants, entertainment and community events are everywhere you turn – and that’s what makes it a fantastic region in which to live and learn. U of T is connected to its local and global communities through a number of initiatives that link our students, staff and faculty with those around us.

“As clichéd as this may sound, I sometimes wonder how differently my life would have turned out if I had never participated in service learning. There is no lecture or textbook that could have given me the skills and insight that I gained through my service learning experience.” — Alison Chan, Urban Studies and CCP alumna
