Getting to Campus

For GPS purposes, please use the intersection of Sterling Street and Forsyth Avenue (185 Sterling Street, Hamilton, Ontario) as coordinates to guide you to the campus entrance. We highly recommend using the Sterling Street entrance because it is the closest to the campus tour meeting location.

There are also a variety of options for you to access public transportation on your way to our campus.
