Getting here

Here is the starting point.

By car:
The main gate to the lot off University Crescent is often locked by security. Access the parking lot from the south instead. Here is a map.

map to get to southwood showing south accessBy bus : Here is the nearest southbound bus stop on University Cr. You can also fairly easily walk over through campus from the main transit hub on Dafoe.

By bike: If you are biking here, you probably already know about the trails through southwood. While hosting ski events here, we see people bike by all the time. This is a great way to get to the University.

On foot: Barriers be damned, this place is easy to get to on foot.  You should have seen the number of faculty and students living in residence that wandered over for our lunch hour ski in January. It was incredible. Anyway, its a short walk from most places on campus. Follow Dr.Google.
