Arriving on Your Own to Residence

If you do not require airport Pick-Up or Drop-Off Service, you must still submit the Travel Information section indicating that you will be arriving  on your own. You can check in to the residence between 3pm and 5pm the day before the start date of the program.

You have several options to get to our residence:

Taxi/Limousine

Follow the signs in the airport to the Taxi Stand, just outside either terminal. An attendant will help you get a taxi. Tell the driver that you are going to New College, University of Toronto St George Campus (downtown).

The taxi fare will be around CAD $60. Limousine service is also available for a higher fare.

Union-Pearson Express (UP Express)

The Union Person Express (UP Express) is an express train that connects Toronto Pearson International Airport with downtown’s Union Station. One-way tickets are CAD $12.00 and Return tickets are CAD $24.00. For more information about the UP Express, please visit their website.

After boarding the train at Terminal 1, you’ll arrive at Union Station. From there, you can either take a taxi (for a fare of about CAD $20) or ride the subway up to campus.

The TTC (Toronto Transit Commission) is the main public transportation system in Toronto. Fares are $3.25 one way. Follow the signs in the airport to the TTC 192 Airport Rocket bus stop.
