Toronto's Leading Research University

It's easy to be swept away by the 180 acres of impeccably manicured grounds with Gothic-Revival architecture and Norman and Richardsonian Romanesque elements displayed throughout the buildings of the University of Toronto. But there's so much more to UT than a pretty "face".

Established in 1827 as King's College, the University of Toronto became a secular institution in 1850. Not only was the University of Toronto the birthplace of stem cell and insulin research, but it also housed the first usable proton microscope. Four Prime Ministers of Canada, four Governers General, and ten Nobel Laureates, and fourteen Supreme Court Justices have opted to study at UT. And with twelve colleges and two satellite campuses, it's safe to say UT is looking towards educating many more future leaders.
