Frisky Business: The Top 10 Make Out Spots on the U of T Campus

Not U of T Students Making Out

Summer is here, it’s getting warmer (for the most part), and animals are procreating. You are probably in love, looking for love, or have aching loins. What do you all have in common? You’re frisky and you want to make out; don’t deny it! The U of T campus is pretty empty now that it’s summer, and if you are taking summer courses, why not take advantage of this? You might have your own secret areas to make out on campus, but here’s a list of our suggestions. Read on for photos, ratings, and a map of the best make out spots on campus!

10. Woodsworth College Quad


The Woodsworth courtyard is a perfect place for courting. It is quiet, except for the gentle sound of water flowing from a strange, fountain-like structure. There are windows all around, however. Anything you do will be seen, so watch out. Unless you’re into that stuff.

9. Victoria College Pond

Perhaps you prefer an artificial waterfall to spice up your make out location. If so, then get yourself and your make out buddy to Victoria College’s pond, just off to the side of the Pratt Library. Careful not to get anything wet though. You don’t want to passers-by to frown upon your indecent behaviour.

romanticness: 3 lips

8. Faculty of Forestry

This thick mass of foliage near the Faculty of Forestry provides good making-out camoulflage from passersby. If you want to keep things PG, you can also just sit down and enjoy the peaceful sounds of birds chirping and leaves rustling.

7. Lash Miller

Lash Miller
Don’t like trees? Recently constructed, the courtyard of Lash Miller is the place for you. You can still enjoy the sunshine and breeze without potentially getting dirt and leaves on yourself. Just don’t mind if a friendly, U of T raccoon passes by (yes, I saw one when I was taking this picture).
privacy: 1 lock
romanticness: 2 locks

6. Courtyard Beside UC

UC Courtyard
This is the perfect, open area to have a picnic and cuddle over a nice blanket. Don’t try to make any moves, though, because a lot of people walk by this area.
privacy: 1 lock
romanticness: 3 lips

5. UC Quad

UC Quad

If you liked the scenery in Harry Potter, you probably enjoy the atmosphere of UC. It has a very peaceful, mysterious, woods-ey feel. If that makes your loins tingle, that’s okay, because other people in the quad can’t see what you are doing if you are far enough away from them (given that it’s nothing too obvious).
privacy: 3 locks
romanticness: 3 lips

4. Knox College Quad

Knox College

Knox College
In the beautiful quad of Knox college, you will find yourself surrounded by gorgeous Gothic architecture. There’s even what looks like a love seat at your disposal. Don’t get too lovey-dovey though, because there are windows facing the quad. And afterall, you wouldn’t want to be caught doing anything unchaste in the quad of U of T’s school of theology.
privacy: 2 locks
romanticness: 4 lip

3. CCBR Bamboo Garden


How do you know if a location is a good make out spot? Well, you could judge the setting, the scenery, the privacy etc. Or, you could just notice that people always, ALWAYS, make out there. This, is one of those spots: the indoor bamboo garden in the CCBR building. Bonus advantage: it’s scenic setting indoors, so it can be your make out “go to” spot for those stormy days.

2. Philosopher’s Walk

philosopher’s walk

With an expanse of trees, grass and paths, this romantically named location is an idea make out pot for those beautiful summer days. You can find a spot a bit out of the way to avoid the occasional passerby and break out your make out. (Oh yeah, I saw people making out while I was there to take the photos for this post)
privacy: 3 locks
romanticness: 3 lips

1. New College Basement

New College
This tutorial room located in the deserted, maze-like basement of New College is a definite no-no for first dates. On the other hand, you are looking for a private place to study, or “study” (hint, hint), it’s the perfect place to rent out from the porter. You can just lock the door and let loose.
privacy: 2 locks
romanticness: 1 lip

Rating key:
1lip – a last resort
2lip – acceptable
1lip – pretty good
1lip – very romantic

Privacy level:
1 lock – hand-holding and hugs only
1 lock – French kissing okay
1 lock – discreet PG-13 action allowed
1 lock – hubba hubba — anything goes!

    LOL, you missed Robarts library study room! I accidentally ran into people making out there… It will be more private if you can find a way to lock the door. It’s got nice view up there. You can see the lake! I guess it’s a bonus for romance 😀

    Panzz: There’s a lake? What floor is the study room on?

    What about the little chapel area beside the UC college? Granted it has no privacy, but its so adorable.

    On the roll of no privacy, I would vote for King’s College Circle for all the exhibitionists out there 😉

    Lash Miller should have been a lot higher. The couches on the 3rd and 4th floor are crazy busy with young couples.

    To Lori: I meant Lake Ontario, lol. Only a corner of it though… Don’t want to raise your expectation to too high and have you disappointed 😛
    The study rooms are located on 9th ~ 13th floors. I don’t remember on which floor I saw them. I would expect 13th floor to be even prettier during sun rise/set 😉

    1. The 13th floor or Robarts is GRRREAT!!! A lot went down in room 13132! ;)2. There is a telephone booth with a seat in it in the basement of UC. It’s located right under the large wooden stairs…low traffic and lots of room!3. The balcony looking down on the squash courts at Hart House is usually dark. It’s a great place to make out after a sweaty workout with significant other.

    the rooms in the basement at UC

    (.. but something always goes down at new college..) 😉

    CCBR is connected to MedSci, right?

    I can’t remember the name of the college building, but one of the small religious colleges by Vic (you see the building when you get off at Museum Station) has a little chapel with a locking on the 3rd floor that’s perfect! It’s carpeted if you wanna use the floor and there’s this padded bench thing as well.
    Victoria’s Pratt Library also has handicap washrooms on the top floor that are HUGE single bathroom kinds (ie a whole room that locks). It’s not much in terms of comfort but you’re guaranteed comfort – it’s the perfect study break!
    In trinity library on the second or third floor (maybe even both?), if you go all the way down the hall in either direction you’ll find the quiet study room. It’s carpeted and has comfy couches and a little fire escape thats kind of hidden out of sight if anyone walks in through the door. It’s usually empty during summers, just don’t go around closing time when staff make their checks.
    And there are always a few empty rooms at OISE, most of which are lockable.

    Omg, that is bloody amazing O.O I’ve never actually ran into anyone making out (having visited some of the places you’ve mention).

    Anyways, must try out the new places ^_^… how do you get into the 13th floor robarts rooms?

    For any BJ nut I heartily recommend CCBR, new building. Something about this place will have your girl reaching out and [bleep]ing on your doodoo before you can say, “I was wondering….

    I might have been pleased with this post if there weren’t 10 000 spelling mistakes. A suggestion might be to write your posts in Microsoft Word and then post them. Great concept though!

    Great article!

    The Trinity College & Massey Hall quads are very beautiful as well. If you want to keep things PG that is.

    Haha this is great!

    Now that I know all the places to go, I just need to convince someone to go discover them with me. 😉
