Based in the Scarborough district of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, the campus is set upon suburban parkland in the residential neighbourhood of Highland Creek. It was established in 1964 as Scarborough College, a constituent college of the Faculty of Arts and Science. The college expanded into a mid-sized university campus following its designation as an autonomic division of the university in 1972. The campus adopted its present name after being renamed University of Toronto Scarborough Campus in 1983 and University of Toronto at Scarborough in 1996. Academics of the campus are centered on a variety of undergraduate studies in the disciplines of arts, sciences, and management, whilst also hosting limited postgraduate research programs. Its neuroscience program was the first to be offered in the nation. The campus is noted for being the sole provider of cooperative education programs, as well as the Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) degree, in the university. Through affilation with Centennial College, it also offers enrolment in joint programs. The campus has traditionally held the annual F. B. Watts Memorial Lectures, which has hosted several internationally renowned scholars, since 1970. Its nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) laboratory was the first of its kind in Canada, allowing the campus to conduct influential research in the environmental sciences. The original building of the campus was internationally acclaimed for its architectural design. The campus is home to the baseball team of the Varsity Blues, the intercollegiate sports club of the university.

The mansion included 17 rooms, a barn, a coach house, and three houses for his staff to dwell. Over the following years, over 100 acres of the estate was also used as farmland. Following the death of Miller Lash in 1941, the estate was acquired by E. L. McLean, an insurance broker, in 1944 for $59,000.[4] He made new additions to the estate, including a swimming pool and change room, and a retaining wall made in stone. About 82 hectares (200 acres) of property was later purchased from McLean, just before his death, by the University of Toronto for about $650,000 in 1963, as part of the university's regional expansion. The groundskeeper of the land would continue to reside in the Highland Creek valley for the next 29 years. McLean's additions to the Miller Lash House, which would eventually become the residence of the campus's principal, were modernized and 70 acres of surrounding land north of the estate were also acquired. The University of Toronto established the Scarborough College as part of the institution's collegiate university system and declared the campus as a branch of the Faculty of Arts and Science. D. C. Williams was appointed as the principal of Scarborough College and the planned Erindale College, as well as vice-president of the university. The college's faculty, consisting of 16 members, was also established and headquartered at the main campus in Downtown. Designed by John Andrews, the first building of the campus began construction the following year.[5] Due to delays in construction after a strike among workers, the Scarborough College opened in temporary classes at the main campus to 191 full-time students in 1965. The first building of the college was completed in time for the following academic year. The college included a 6,000-square-foot (560 m2) television production studio. This was for a unique video lecturing system the college was initially planned to have, that relies on the use of closed circuit television for teaching purposes.[6] The system grabbed international media attention, and was complimented in the 1967 edition of Time.[7] However, the video lecturing system was abandoned after it was condemned for the lack of communicability of students with instructors. In 1972, the campus was reorganized as a separately governed division of the university's Faculty of Arts and Science, developing its own curriculum. In 1973, it became the first post-secondary institution to adopt a course credit system in Ontario and the first cooperative education program was established. Campus The campus of the University of Toronto Scarborough is considered equivalent to a mid-sized university.[8] It sits on 123 hectares (300 acres) of land, forming the west side of the Highland Creek neighbourhood in Scarborough, the east-end of Toronto. It is bounded entirely by Morningside Avenue to the west. Its eastern, northern and southern borders are not definite, however; the campus grounds extend north halfway between Highway 401 and Ellesmere Road and extends south just above Old Kingston Road. Its eastern boundary is Military Trail while south of Ellesmere Road and slightly further east while north of Ellesmere. Unlike the university's main campus, the University of Toronto Scarborough is located in a suburban area, consisting of residential houses along its eastern side and urban forestry linking to Morningside Park on its southern and western side. The Highland Creek river runs through the southern portion of the grounds and contains walking trails that link to the campus and nearby neighbourhoods. Looking west: Science Wing ahead, Bladen Building on the left, and the Arts and Administration Building on the right. The Andrews Building, the original building of the campus named after its designer, was built in a brutalist architectural style and completed in 1964. The interiors were made to mimic streets of a city, with wide hallways and balconies on upper floors. It contains two separated wings, known as the Science Wing and the Humanities Wing, connected by an underground corridor. The Meeting Place, considered the intersection, is often used to hold cultural events in campus, as well as community events.[7] The design of the Andrews Building, along with its unique closed circuit television teaching system, were targets of international acclaim during the decade.[9] The Science Research Building, where post-graduate research facilities are located, is an extension of the Science Wing that was completed in 2008.[10] The 1970s and onward saw new buildings being designed in a modernist style.[11] The Recreational Building was completed in 1972, followed by the Bladen Building, which opened the next year and named after Vincent Bladen, former dean of the Faculty of Arts and Science. An underground corridor completed in 1995, known as the Hall of Excellence, connects it to the Andrews Building. The Academic Research Centre (ARC) was built in 2003 as an extension of the Bladen Building with a copper finish. It contains the Bladen Library, also known as the University of Toronto Scarborough Library, which was relocated from its previous, smaller spot at the Bladen Building. The Doris McCarthy Gallery, also found in the ARC, exhibits works by Scarborough-born artist, Doris McCarthy. The Social Sciences Building, home of the Department of Social Sciences, opened in 2004. Brick and limestone were used to create the Arts and Administration Building, completed in 2005,[12] which holds the Office of the Registrar and the principal's office.[13] In 2011, the Instructional Centre opened as the largest building of the campus and became home to the Department of Management, the Department of Computer and Mathematical Sciences, and offices of cooperative education programs. Student residence is located primarily in the southern part of the campus, consisting of townhouse style homes. The first residence area, the Student Village, which was able to accommodate 250 students, was opened in 1973 after pressure from traveling students. In 1985, a former building of the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce (CIBC) near the campus was also converted to student residence. The 4-storey high Joan Foley Hall, opened in 2003, is the first apartment-style residence complex on campus, named after the campus's first female principal.[14] The N'Sheemaehn Child Care Centre, one of the university's non-profit child day care facilities, opened in 1990. The Student Centre was opened in 2004 through a project that was initiated and funded by students. Constructed using 18 tonnes of recycled steel from a demolished gallery at the Royal Ontario Museum, its Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification earned the building a Green Design Award from the City of Toronto.[15] Adjacent to it are the campus's transit bus stop and passenger drop-off loop.[16] The campus is linked to nearby transportation hubs, such as Scarborough Centre and the Rouge Hill GO Station, by the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) and GO Transit. Student and visitor parking is located in various spots around the campus, but larger lots are located north of Ellesmere Road. In 2009, the municipal government of Toronto vowed to jointly fund the construction of a world-class, state-of-the-art athletics centre on campus, part of which would be used as a venue during the Pan American Games in 2015.[9] Academics Academic material and various accessories are sold at the Bookstore. The campus is primarily an undergraduate institution, thus it attacts the most direct-entry applicants from secondary schools among the university's three campuses.[17] The campus is comprised of nine academic departments: the Department of Biological Sciences, the Department of Computer and Mathematical Sciences, the Department of English, the Department of Humanities, the Department of Management, the Department of Philosophy, the Department of Physical & Environmental Sciences, the Department of Psychology, and the Department of Social Sciences.[18] Students are diversified among concentrations that are specialist degrees, as well as the common majors and minors. The cooperative education programs, which place students for up to three semesters in workplaces pertaining to their field of study, are unique to the campus in the University of Toronto. Joint programs with Centennial College, that award both a university degree and a college diploma, are offered in journalism, new media, paramedicine, industrial microbiology, and environmental science.[19] A service-learning course, called Science Engagement, is also available. Four departments of the campus contain programs that award a Bachelor of Arts degree. The Department of Humanities has programs in non-English languages, history, visual and performing arts, linguistics, religion and philosophy. It also offers a few interdisciplinary programs, such as women's studies, cultural pluralism and diaspora studies. It is also one of the only two universities in Ontario that grants an undergraduate degree in arts management. The Department of English and the Department of Philosophy are newly created departments, whose programs were formerly supported by the Department of Humanities. At the Department of Social Sciences, a mixture of liberal arts and science based courses are offered. Programs include sociology, anthropology, political science and geography. Like Humanities, the department also houses many interdisciplinary programs including city studies, new media, public policy and international development studies. The Bachelor of Business Administration degree is also unique to the campus, which is awarded by the programs in the Department of Management, which offers specialist degrees with fields in marketing, human resources, finances, accounting and economics. The university has four departments in the sciences, which award a Bachelor of Science degree. The Department of Psychology includes programs in psychology, mental health and neuroscience. The Department of Physical & Environmental Sciences oversees programs in physics, astronomy, environmental sciences and chemistry. The Department of Biology offers programs and courses related to the biological and life sciences. The Department of Computer and Mathematical Sciences teaches computer science, mathematics and statistics. The campus offers a Master's degree and a doctorate in environmental sciences, its only postgraduate program. Student life The Student Centre is a landmark for student life at campus. Prior to the opening of the Student Centre, the University of Toronto Scarborough was one of two university campuses in Canada to not have a student activity centre.[20] Upon opening, it became the home of student life, governance, and culture of the campus. The Student Centre is a three-story 48,000-square-foot (4,500 m2) building, where the office of the Scarborough Campus Students' Union (SCSU), office of Student Affairs of the University of Toronto Scarborough, as well as other offices of student clubs and organizations, are located. It also contains a television lounge, food court, public house, health and wellness centre, and multifaith prayer room.[21] Apart from the Student Centre's food court, other dining places on campus include The H-Wing Marketplace, located in the Andrews Building, and a future food court in the Instructional Centre. The campus also contains two Tim Hortons restaurants in the Andrews Building. The Rex's Den is a pub and dine-in restaurant, located in the first floor of the Student Centre. It was formerly operated as The Bluffs, which opened subsequently after the opening of the Student Centre, but was closed down and re-opened with its present name and improved service in 2009.[22] Student media on the campus include Fusion Radio, the campus's student-run internet radio station, and The Underground, the campus's official student newspaper. The campus also receives distributions of The Varsity. Noted people See also: List of University of Toronto people Graduate portraits are displayed at the Hall of Excellence.
