Victoria College, founded in 1836 as Upper Canada Academy, was granted a university charter in 1841 and federated with the University of Toronto in 1892.

The college is located on a 15-acre site at the north-east corner of Queen's Park opposite the Royal Ontario Museum. It offers many facilities to its students, including the E.J. Pratt Library with its 220,000 volumes, the Wymilwood Student Union, and a playing field. The Victoria College building, opened in 1892, contains classrooms, some faculty and administrative offices, the Learning Centre, Chapel and Alumni Hall. Northrop Frye Hall, completed in 1966, also provides office space for most of the administrative and teaching staff and contains classrooms and a large auditorium theatre. The College has a Math Aid Centre, a Writing Workshop, and tutorial services in a wide range of subjects.

Residence accommodation for approximately 700 students is available on campus. Annesley Hall, Margaret Addison Hall and Burwash Hall provide accommodation in single and double rooms for chiefly undergraduate students. The Lower Houses of Burwash Hall and Rowell Jackman Hall, an apartment style residence, house upper-year undergraduate and graduate students. All residence students take their meals in Burwash Dining Hall. Non-residence students may purchase meal tickets for Burwash or take light meals at Ned's. Further information about residences may be obtained by writing to the Dean of Students, Victoria College, Toronto, Ontario, M5S 1K7.
