Doors Open Toronto

On May 29, UTSC joins Toronto as it opens the doors to some of the most fascinating buildings in the city. Twenty university properties on two U of T campuses (St.George and Scarborough) are participating in the 5th annual Doors Open Toronto, the free weekend celebration of the city's built heritage.

From national historic sites to the newest contemporary designs, you're invited to share some of our best:

Academic Resource Centre

Academic Resource

Opened in November of 2003, UTSC's new library forms a bold counterpoint to the original UTSC Andrews building. Designed by Brian McKay-Lyons in association with Rounthwaite, Dick and Hadley, the building features soaring open spaces linked by bridges leading to intimate study areas. Using a simple palate of wood, copper and concrete, the design has an economy of means and frugal beauty and a sunlit courtyard joins the two buildings.

Science and Humanities Wings

Sciences Building

Overlooking the Highland Creek ravine and situated on over 300 wooded acres the main academic building at UTSC was designed by John Andrews and opened in 1965 to immediate international acclaim for its striking architecture. It remains a point of pilgrimage for architecture students, its concrete massing a powerful blend of light, form and space.
