Living in Toronto

Convocation hall in snow

Wycliffe College is located in the heart of downtown Toronto, a dynamic, culturally diverse, modern city with a population of 5.6 million. 


Museum Subway Station

We are only steps away from local transit which makes it easy to explore the museums, games, festivals, concerts and special events that make Toronto such a great place to live and study.


Toronto HarbourFront

Take a short subway ride to explore the cafes and restaurants along the Toronto Harbourfront.


Spadina Ave

Students are encouraged to meet their new neighbours, find a church and serve in their community. Toronto is a city of international neighbourhoods such as Little India, Greektown, Little Italy and Chinatown.


Relaxing at High Park

Students with families will find lots of daycare and child-friendly activities just around the corner. They will also find  parks and green spaces like Queens Park and High Park - a great place to picnic, read, play, stroll or just plain relax.

Many shops and vendors are just around the corner

Wycliffe is only minutes away from great shopping experiences. Scour for bargains in the Fashion District or enjoy the many outdoor vendors.

Students registered in the Toronto School of Theology have access to UofT libraries, the largest academic library in Canada and one of the top three academic research library systems in North America. Robard’s Library (in the background) is just one of dozens of libraries available for those students in a conjoint degree program.


Roger's Centre (SkyDome)

Enjoy watching sports more than participating? Toronto is home to major-league sports teams and state-of-the-art sports facilities. Take in a Blue Jays, Raptors or Toronto Maple Leafs game.
