Access during construction

A big construction project at the north end of campus has changed the usual routes to CUAG. After you park in the P18 parkade, please walk out, turn right and walk through the parking lot, following the blue construction fencing all the way to CUAG. The route is marked with a green dotted line on the map below.

Getting here


The O-Train Trillium Line (Line 2) serves Carleton from the Bayview and Greenboro transit stations, with stops at Carling and Confederation. NOTE: The Trillium Line is currently closed and has been replaced with R2 bus service running the line and stopping at all Line 2 stations. Bus fares are the same as for the O-Train.


There is a dedicated bike lane on Colonel By Drive with access to the campus at Hartwell Locks. There are bike racks outside the St. Patrick’s Building.


Take Bronson Avenue to the Sunnyside Avenue entrance to the campus. Turn into campus and go straight. Enter the roundabout and exit out the back, crossing the bridge over the O-Train tracks. At the stop sign, turn right and park in the nearby parkade (Lot P18).


All visitor parking at the north end of campus is in the P18 parkade, built over the O-train tracks. The entrance is located on the parkade’s west side. Here is a parking map.

The parkade is a three-level structure that has four “pay by plate” machines on each level, one in each corner. The exception is level 3, which has three machines.

***You do not need to download an app to pay for parking.*** You can pay with a credit card at all the machines. You can pay with coins at one machine on level 1 (at the D-1 stairwell) and one machine on level 2 (at the D-2 stairwell). Once you’ve purchased a ticket, display it on your dashboard and park anywhere in the parkade.
