The University of Toronto (U of T, UToronto, or Toronto) is a public research university in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, situated on the grounds that surround Queen Park as its shown in u of t map. U of T was founded by royal charter in 1827 as King College, the first institution of higher learning in Upper Canada. Originally controlled by the Church of England, the U of T university assumed the present name in 1850 upon becoming a secular institution. As a collegiate university, u of t comprises twelve colleges that differ in character and history, each retaining substantial autonomy on financial and institutional affairs.
Academically, the u of t is noted for influential movements and curricula in literary criticism and communication theory, known collectively as the Toronto School. The u of t university was the birthplace of insulin and stem cell research, and was the site of the first practical electron microscope, the development of multi-touch technology, the identification of Cygnus X-1 as a black hole, and the theory of NP completeness as its mentioned in u of t map. By a significant margin, u of t receives the most annual research funding of any Canadian university. U of T is one of two members of the Association of American Universities located outside the United States.
The u of t is ranked first in Canada and second globally in University Ranking by Academic Performance (see u of t map); first in Canada and 19th worldwide in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings; first in Canada and 27th worldwide in the Academic Ranking of World Universities; second in Canada and 23rd globally in the QS World University Rankings; and first in Canada and third overall in Newsweek ranking of top institutions outside of the United States. The u of t university has educated two Governors General and four Prime Ministers of Canada, four foreign leaders, fourteen Justices of the Supreme Court, and has been affiliated with ten Nobel laureates.
The u of t university grounds lie about 2 kilometres (1.2 mi) north of the Financial District in Downtown Toronto, and immediately south of the neighbourhoods of Yorkville and The Annex as you can see in u of t map. The site of u of t encompasses 71 hectares (180 acres) bounded mostly by Bay Street, Bloor Street, Spadina Avenue and College Street. An enclave surrounded by university grounds, Queen Park contains the Ontario Legislative Building and several historic monuments. With its green spaces and many interlocking courtyards, the u of t university forms a distinct region of urban parkland in the city downtown core. The namesake University Avenue is a ceremonial boulevard and arterial thoroughfare that runs through downtown between Queen's Park and Front Street. The Spadina, St. George, Museum, Bay, and Queen Park stations of the Toronto subway system are located in the vicinity.
