Getting Around

Getting to Toronto and the Lab

Toronto has two main airportsToronto Pearson Airport is located west of the city and is 21km from the Glendon College campus, where coLAB is held. Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport is located downtown and 15km south of campus. A taxi ride to the downtown area will cost around $60 and $20 respectively, or public transportation is available.

Our Practice Intensive will be held in the Glendon College MCI Lab. The campus is located northeast of downtown and accessible via public transport (metro to bus – not located on the metro line). You can plan your trip via the TTC trip planner or Google Maps.

Once on campus, two coLAB crew members will be stationed at the entrance of the first big glass building, the Centre of Excellence, to point you towards the lab. Campus Map. Welcome!

Where to Stay

There are plenty of hotels, hostels and AirBnB options in Toronto. If you’d like to stay in the heart of it all, downtown is a great option, but be ready for a 45-55 minute commute to campus via public transport. For ease, you might wish to stay further north, closer to campus.

Campus address:
2275 Bayview Ave,
North York, ON M4N 3M6

At times, Glendon is able to offer basic, low-cost dorm accommodations right on campus. This is a separate service that is not directly offered by coLAB. To inquire about availability and reserve, contact Pascal Lewin (plewin@yorku.ca // 416-487-6798) and mention coLAB with Laura Holcomb and the exact dates you wish to book.

Where to Eat

Downtown Toronto has some GREAT food, so do explore. But the Glendon campus is a bit more isolated. We recommend packing a lunch or optionally eating in the campus dining hall for convenience’s sake.

However for the more adventurous, there are some options at the nearest Metro location at Yonge and Lawrence, which is about a 20 minute walk or a short bus trip away from campus. At Yonge and Lawrence there are fast food outlets such as Pizza Pizza and some sit-in restaurants (Joy Thai, Parmegiano Trattoria, The Uptown Pub House, to name a few).

Quite a few eateries are also available a quick bus trip south of campus down Bayview Avenue between Manor Road and Davisville Avenue (California Roll, Lemongrass, Riz Restaurant).
