Venues & Transportation

Friday evening

University of Toronto Linguistics Department
Sidney Smith Hall, 100 St. George Street, 4th floor

By car: The Linguistics Department is located near Harbord St. & St. George St. The closest U of T parking lot is under the Rotman Centre (107 St. George, east side), and others can be found on U of T’s campus map here (click Parking in the side bar). Alternately, city parking is available a short walk away (find a lot here).

By TTC: The department is closest to St. George Station on Line 2 (Bloor-Danforth). From there, it is a straight walk south for about 7 minutes; the front entrance of the building is on the west side.
Alternately, the route that involves the least walking is to go to Spadina Station and take the 510 streetcar south for two stops (to Harbord St.); this is about a 3 minute walk.
The 94 Harbord bus stops at St. George & Harbord St., which is also very close, but it is less frequent (every 20 minutes), so it is usually only practical if you are coming from or heading to Ossington Station, Wellesley Station, or Castle Frank Station.


Chestnut Residence and Conference Centre
89 Chestnut Street, 2nd floor

By car: The Chestnut Centre is located just south of Dundas St. between University Ave. and Bay St. (just behind City Hall). Chestnut has an underground parking lot (rates & info); the building is on the east side of the street, and the parking entrance is on the north side of the building.  Alternately, you can find city parking nearby (search for a lot here).

By TTC: The nearest subway station is St. Patrick Station, on the University section of Line 1 (Yonge-University-Spadina); Chestnut St. is two short blocks east of the station. You could also take the 505 Dundas streetcar/bus; there is a surface route stop at Dundas & Chestnut.
Please note: On Saturday, November 3rd, the TTC has a scheduled closure on Line 1 (Yonge line) between Lawrence and St. Clair stations. Shuttle bus service will be in place between these stations, but please keep this interruption in mind if you will be coming in via the Yonge line north of St. Clair.
