The current labour disruption at York University is resulting in traffic congestion and time delays at our Keele campus. While the Aviva Centre is owned by Tennis Canada (i.e. private property), Shoreham Drive will be overcrowded and should be avoided. For your comfort and convenience, Convocation guests, students and faculty are encouraged to take the subway to the Pioneer Village TTC subway station. We are also pleased to offer free shuttle buses around campus to facilitate movement to and from the Aviva Centre for the ceremonies. While limited complimentary parking is available in the Black Creek Pioneer Village parking lot and in our Founders East parking lot, it is advisable to use public transit or a vehicle drop-off.
During this labour action, we encourage everyone to remain patient and to allocate extra time for travel. Convocation is a time for celebration and we are endeavouring to provide the best service for everyone at this special time.
