For those wishing to stay off campus (e.g., downtown Toronto), we would encourage you to find options along the TTC’s Line 1 (the University side, i.e. between Union and York University) to ensure easy, direct and quick arrival to York University.
The Schulich School of Business is connected to downtown Toronto by subway, with York University Subway station located directly outside the School. You can stay downtown for the arts and culture, while easily getting to the conference venue on public transit.
If you are arriving in Toronto by air, the Toronto Pearson Airport is about a 30-minute taxi ride from the School, depending on traffic. Those arriving on short-haul flights at the downtown Billy Bishop Airport can get to the School by public transit, via the Union subway station.
The TTC’s York University Subway Station is located steps away from the Schulich School of Business. For information about TTC schedules, operation hours and fares, please click here.
Other public transit options, including GO, Züm and YRT/Viva, offer convenient connections to the University.
Driving directions to the Schulich School of Business can be found on Google Maps. The Student Services Parking Garage is where you want to end up. It is directly across from the School’s south entrance. It features an underground link to the Schulich School of Business, in case of inclement weather.
If you are looking up the address on your phone, keep in mind that York University and the Schulich School of Business operate multiple campuses. The one you want is at 4700 Keele Street in Toronto, which shows up on some mapping apps as 4700 Keele Street, North York, ON.
Almost all international and domestic flights will arrive at the Toronto Pearson Airport (YYZ). It’s about a 30-minute taxi ride, depending on traffic, to get to York University. All licensed taxis operate from Pearson Airport on an official distance-determined rate (i.e., the fare depends on your destination, not the travel time).
Some short-haul domestic and US flights will arrive at Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport (YTZ), in downtown Toronto. There is a free shuttle from YTZ that will take you to Union Station. Alternatively, you can take a short cab ride. From Union it is easy to get to York University campus by subway. Note that taxi rides directly from this airport to York University campus can vary widely in fare and time depending on traffic conditions.
Toronto is a vibrant city with lots of amazing things to do and see. You may wish to extend your stay around the conference to explore. For more information see Tourism Toronto.
The average temperature in July in Toronto is:
While some people find that Toronto can be hot and humid in the summer, to create a comfortable working environment we suggest that dress for the conference be business casual. This includes the conference dinner.
