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
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.
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
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
6. Courtyard Beside UC
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.
5. 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).
4. Knox College Quad
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.
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
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)
1. New College Basement
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.
