We have booked a group of townhouses on the university campus for the conference for $60/night + tax. Accommodation would be shared with other conference attendees. For more information, see here.
We encourage attendees to stay in the on-campus housing, but if you would like to stay downtown, a good choice the university uses is the Holiday Inn Toronto Bloor-Yorkville, which is on the green subway line toward Scarborough (just over an hour) and a 10 minute walk from the downtown campus. Hotel choices closer to Scarborough are limited. The university typically recommends Delta Hotels by Marriott Toronto East, but you'd probably have to take a taxi to campus or rent a car (and pay for parking). Let us know if you have any questions.
Address: University of Toronto at Scarborough, 1265 Military Trail, Scarborough M1C 1A4.
From Pearson airport: Taxi will cost about $80 and take about 30 minutes (unless during rush hour!). Public transport will cost $3 and about two hours. You will need exact Canadian change, which you can get from ATM/airport stores. Take the 192 bus south to Kipling station, then take the subway green line East to the last station (Kennedy). From there take the 198 bus, which goes directly to UTSC.
From Billy Bishop airport: Taxi will probably cost a comparable amount to above and take about 45 minutes (unless during rush hour!). Public transport will cost $3 and take a bit less than 2 hours. You will need exact Canadian change, which you can get from ATM/airport stores.Take the 509 streetcar to Union station. Then take the subway yellow line north (the eastern leg) to Bloor-Yonge (or St George if you went up the other leg). Then take the green line east all the way to the end (Kennedy station). Then take the 198 bus, which goes directly to UTSC.
