The University of Toronto also has a history of promoting seriously high quality architecture, but for a long time its Mississauga campus did not meet the standard set downtown (and certainly not the quality of John Andrews' brutalist Scarborough College Campus). That has been changing.

The new instructional centre promises more.

The Centre’s luxurious materials, smart classrooms, inviting public spaces and environmental features demonstrate the University of Toronto’s commitment to strengthening the educational experience with inspirational architecture and sustainable principles that are increasing the pleasure and wellbeing of its students, faculty, staff, and visitors.
