Humber College Lakeshore Campus

A few weekends ago I stumbled upon Humber College’s Lakeshore Campus in Mimico. Originally home to the Lakeshore Psychiatric Hospital, Humber College purchased the land in 1991 and began the intense restoration process of converting the defunct hospital into an animated college campus. Many of the hospital’s original buildings still remain to this day, characterized by their warm red brick facades and yellow trimmed windows. The campus was eerily empty on this beautiful Sunday morning, further lending to the unexpected past of these historic buildings.
