About Toronto & GTA

Arts and sports. Night life and nature. Food and fun. Being located across the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) means Sheridan students get unlimited access to Canada’s biggest urban playground, cultural capital and business centre.

About Toronto

Toronto is Canada’s biggest city and cultural capital. It’s vibrant. It’s eclectic. It’s amazing. And it is very close to all three Sheridan campuses — easily accessible by car or public transit.

As a Sheridan student in the ever-vibrant Greater Toronto Area, you can find and do whatever makes your world turn, from nature explorations to night life to world-class festivals to local treasures.

Mississauga

Located on the shores of Lake Ontario, Canada's sixth-largest city offers beaches, marinas, parks and trails for all kinds of outdoor fun. It's also a great place for arts, with galleries including the Gallery for Emerging Young Artists. Other highlights include free concerts in Celebration Square and the Festival of Cultures, which is the largest multicultural festival in Ontario.

Oakville

Oakville is 30 minutes from downtown Toronto and only an hour's drive from Niagara Falls. It's an appealing place, from the old-world feel of downtown to multicultural Kerr Village to the waterfront Village of Bronte. Restaurants, cafés and galleries fill the downtown core, which also hosts the Oakville Jazz Festival during the summer.

Brampton

Brampton is fast becoming known as a creative and cultural hub in the Greater Toronto Area. Young and diverse, Brampton boasts 175 ethnic backgrounds and a great mix of restaurants, boutiques and festivals. With plenty of lakes, beaches, and parks, and 267 km of trails, there are also hundreds of reasons to get outside.
