Upgrade at U of T’s Robarts Library

How many of us have spent late nights here?….. 

 The Toronto Star is reporting today that the University of Toronto’s Robarts Library will be receiving a new $75 million upgrade for the first time in 35 years. The Ontario government is also expected to announce today a $15 million grant to go towards this project. The revitalization and expansion plan includes:

  • a new wing with over 1,000 new study spaces
  • improvement of over 1,000 existing study spaces
  • adding over 1,000 more study spaces to the existing building
  • outdoor ampitheatre-style seating
  • the removal of some of the upper concrete walls to let the sun come in


  1. That is great news. I hope other Ontario schools receive similar grants.
