Honouring U of T’s Heroes
Inside and out, Soldiers’ Tower is a poignant and vibrant memorial that honours the fallen and preserves the University’s wartime heritage for our entire community.
Features of the memorial
From the Memorial Wall to the Staircase of Honour and Memorial Room, the 44-metre (143-foot) Soldiers’ Tower is designed as an inspiring monument to the 1,185 members of the U of T community who gave their lives in the First and Second World Wars.
