Toronto parking officials at the University of Toronto are very vigorous in their duties. Parking tickets are $30+ and are issued by the city.

Make sure you obtain a parking permit and park in an allowed spot.

Street parking is $1.50/hour but permits are issued for 2 hours maximium only. Obtain permits from the cash machines (credit cards are accepted) and display them on your dashboard.

Parking on campus is $6/hour or $14/day. There is a flat rate of $5 after 5 p.m. Monday - Friday and all day on weekends. Daily passes can be purchased from ticket dispensers at various locations or at kiosks upon entry into the main campus area.

There are a few places to eat on campus. The university is surrounded by local area eateries. In particular, the campus is located on the north-east corner of Chinatown, so there are many Asian restaurants in the area. The highest density of restaurants are Bloor street to the North, Harbord street to the West, and College Street, Spadina and Baldwin Avenues to the South. These areas are indicated on the map below.

Restaurant reviews and suggestions are available from various online sites:
