Banting Institute

Banting & Best Centre building entrance on College Street

Once the epicentre of academic medical research at the University of Toronto, the Banting Institute has been given a new lease on life as the home of University of Toronto Entrepreneurship.

The building is currently being filled with companies as well as organizations dedicated to the process of commercialization.

The Banting Institute support entrepreneurs turning research discoveries into innovative products and companies that create skilled jobs for students and the province.


Office and laboratory space in the Banting Institute can be leased from the University of Toronto through a license agreement.

Space is very limited at the moment and high demand is expected. If you are seeking office or laboratory space to commercialize your research please contact us for more information about current availability or to arrange for a tour of the buildings.

The annual licensing fee is reasonable and is payable in monthly installments. The fee covers all utilities (electrical energy, heat, water, janitorial services, and waste paper removal). In addition, reservation of common meeting areas and access to the University of Toronto’s high speed network may be provided where possible. Preference will be given to companies that are affiliated with the University of Toronto.
