How to get to the university

  • From the airport

    The City of Oshawa and the University of Ontario Institute of Technology are located approximately 70 kilometers east of Toronto's Lester B. Pearson International Airport. The most convenient and cost-effective way to Oshawa from the airport is to take the Union-Pearson Express train to Union Station. When at Union Station, take the GO Transit Lakeshore East train line, which terminates at the Oshawa train station. From there, you can take a short taxi ride to the university's Bordessa Hall, located at 55 Bond Street East.

    A local limo service, DirectLimo, will offer discounted rates for groups of six or more people traveling to and from the airport together.

  • By public transit

    The Triplinx route planning tool can help you find the most efficient route from your location to the Regent Theatre using public transit. Simply type in your current location in the Start section, and 55 Bond Street, East Oshawa in the End section, to generate your transit route.
