This is University College, the oldest and probably most significant building at U of Toronto. Designed by architects Cumberland and Storm in rugged Romanesque revival style, it was built in 1859 and was the 1st building at the university and remains the centre of the campus. An incredible building with its turrets and towers and wonderful stone carving on the exterior, it was designated a National Historic site in 1968. The interior is spectacular too so I must head down for a photo trip soon! Click on the 'University College' label below to see the shots of the cloisters.
