Humber College, Toronto
Situated in the west end of Toronto, adjacent to 50 acres of parkland and on the shores of Lake Ontario, Humber’s campuses offer the best of both worlds - a city experience in a natural setting. Being minutes from downtown Toronto and having access to multiple public transit options, students can take advantage of the excitement of Toronto’s theatres, clubs and shopping. But if it is nature that is important, then Humber’s location can offer biking, walking and hiking trails in parks and greenbelts.
