Victoria University generously provides workspace and academic privileges to its visitors, including access to the E.J. Pratt (Victoria College) and Emmanuel College Libraries. Access to the Frye archives requires permission of the Victoria College Librarian. Visitors also have access to the rest of the University of Toronto Library System, including the John P. Robarts Library.
The establishment of the Northrop Frye Centre was made possible thanks to an initial donation to Victoria University for such a purpose; however, the Centre relies for its ongoing growth and support on the generosity of individuals, corporations and foundations concerned with both the perpetuation of the Frye legacy and the promotion of excellence in humanities research.
