Abstract: We prove some ``universality'' results for topological dynamical systems. In particular, we show that for any continuous self-map $ T$ of a perfect Polish space, one can find a dense, $ T$-invariant set homeomorphic to the Baire space $ \mathbb{N}^{\mathbb{N}}$; that there exists a bounded linear operator $ U: \ell \rightarrow \ell $ such that any linear operator $ T$ from a separable Banach space into itself with $ \Vert T\Vert \leq 1$ is a linear factor of $ U$; and that given any $ \sigma $-compact family $ {\mathcal F}$ of continuous self-maps of a compact metric space, there is a continuous self-map $ U_{\mathcal F}$ of $ \mathbb{N}^{\mathbb{N}}$ such that each $ T\in {\mathcal F}$ is a factor of $ U_{\mathcal F}$.
