"The Observatory" University Tip by mikey_e
University, Toronto: 19 reviews and 21 photos
The University of Toronto is filled with weird buildings and rooms that have often strayed far from their original purpose. One such building is the Observatory, a 19th century building that was originally designed for students and faculty to watch the night sky and atmospheric conditions. Over the years, however, the Observatory was abandoned with bigger and better facilities, and the building is now home to the University of Toronto Students' Union (UTSU). The doors and dome are frequently painted weird and wonderful colours and the grounds are filled with protest placards, community gardens and the like.
