Join us in exploring the City of Toronto

The Ghosts of the University of Toronto

A little education can be a ghastly business! The downtown campus of the University of Toronto has more than its own share of urban legends. The grand architecture and tree lined paths of the University certainly lend themselves to some ghostly storytelling. You’ll hear the famous Toronto story about two stonemasons, partners in their craft, but bloodthirsty competitors in love. There’s also the little heard tale of the little girl who is eternally lost in the locked up planetarium, and of the biscuit maker who kept his mistress sealed inside a secret chamber. Hear these and many other stories as you explore the Ghosts of the University of Toronto.
