York University subway station construction has started
Construction has begun on and around campus and will continue through the fall of 2010 in preparation for the start of tunneling and station construction in January 2011. Even though construction activity will increase and will cause disruptions, we're committed to providing tours and information sessions for prospective students and families. Come see the exciting changes happening before your eyes!
For more information, visit York's Subway Construction Web site.
Please be advised that there will be intermittent lane closures and traffic delays on the Keele campus due to the commencement of construction for the Toronto-York Spadina subway extension. Complementary parking is available for tour guests who park in the Student Services parking garage (entrance off of James Gilles Street). York's interactive map with up to date construction information is available at: http://www.yorku.ca/web/maps/
