An ideal learning environment

Upper Canada College is located on 35 acres of green space in the heart of Toronto, the largest city in Canada and one of the world’s most multicultural urban centres. The extensive facilities include a double-pad arena with National Hockey League- and Olympic-sized rinks, a fitness complex, tennis courts, swimming pool, recital hall, theatre, film and computer labs, music studios with professional recording equipment, and state-of-the art science labs.

William P. Wilder ’40 Arena & Sports Complex

The William P. Wilder ’40 Arena & Sports Complex is named in honour of Bill Wilder ’40 and his $5-million gift to the arena campaign, the largest donation from an Old Boy in the history of the College at the time of its completion. More than $16.5 million was raised from benefactors, including parents and alumni. Their commitment made the new arena a reality in early 2009. The complex replaced the Patrick Johnson Arena, which was demolished in 2007. The facility houses one NHL-sized and one Olympic-sized rink, which is one of only four Olympic-sized ice surfaces in Ontario.
Here, students practise and play, not just on teams but also as part of the core athletic program. In addition to the ice surfaces, the facility provides the College with football, rugby, soccer and hockey locker rooms, a spectators' lounge, meeting rooms, offices and a spacious lobby.

The facility is also the first “green” arena complex at a Canadian independent school. It is LEED-certified, with significant environmentally sensitive and cost-effective heating and cooling infrastructures.

The facility is open to the UCC community for regularly scheduled family skates.
