Daytime conference sessions will take place in the Department for the Study of Religion in the Jackman Humanities Institute, Room 318, at the University of Toronto, at 170 St. George Street, Toronto, Ontario, M5R 2M8 Canada. (See Public Lectures for alternate locations for evening events.)

There is limited parking in the immediate vicinity. Conference attendees are encouraged to use public transportation. The St. George Station is located directly across the street at the corner of St. George and Bloor Streets.


The Jackman Humanities Building (JHB) is located across the street from St. George subway station (110 meters away). At the subway station, there is an escalator leading up to the St. George St. exit, but unfortunately the elevator is located at the Bedford St. exit (250 meters from the JHB). There are no steps leading into the building. There are working e-doors for both entrances and exits.

All floors are accessible via elevator, and the JHB has three separate elevators of varying sizes. The bathroom on the second floor has an e-door and a wheelchair accessible stall, low sliding locks and grab bars, are large enough to permit wheelchair turn clearance, and the sink, tap, soap, and towels or dryers can all be reached from a wheelchair.

The event is held on one flat level with no interior stairs. All aisles and passageways have wheelchair clearance and turn around space. We request that the event be kept scent-free. If you require any access accommodations, please make a request and we’ll do our best to meet those needs.
