About the Scarborough Campus

An anchor institution in the eastern GTA, U of T Scarborough combines the intimacy of a close-knit campus with the breadth of the liberal arts and the depth and rigor of 1 of the world’s best research universities.

The dynamic campus life features more than 2,000 student groups. Located next to popular natural landmarks in Toronto’s greenest area, U of T Scarborough is situated in one of Toronto’s most diverse and multicultural neighbourhoods. New buildings by award-winning architects characterize U of T Scarborough's transformational growth. The Toronto Pan Am Sports Centre — a world-class fitness and training centre — represents Canada’s largest investment in amateur sport infrastructure, opened to U of T Scarborough students and the community in September 2014, and hosted events for the 2015 Pan Am/Parapan American Games.

Special Characteristics

The new BBA/BSc double degree (pending approval) will combine Management and Statistics programs into a powerful offering that will have students graduate with both a business degree and a science degree.
