To prepare for the development of the new SAMIH building and the Retail and Parking Commons, several changes will be taking place on the UTSC North campus, which may impact the day-to-day activities, operations and facility use for staff, faculty, students, and librarians.
FAQ FOR NORTH CAMPUS DEVELOPMENTS:
What are the major developments to begin on campus?
- TPASC PARKING LOT:
As of October 10, 2023 the TPASC south parking closed down with a new interim parking (the East Lot) located across from the East Entrance to the Centre. The interim East Lot contains the same number of parking spots and will still offer two hours complimentary parking. TPASC parking rates can be found here.
- PAN AM DRIVE ROAD CLOSURE:
Part of Pan Am drive will be closed off as of February 2024 for the development of Retail and Parking Commons. The Pan Am drive road closure will begin at the southeast corner of the TPASC building and end at parking lot G.
- THE CAMPUS FARM FOOT PATH:
The foot path to the campus farm will be relocated alongside the new interim parking lot structure across from TPASC building.
What does this mean for my daily commute time?
For those who commute to campus by vehicle, you may experience heavier traffic while Pan Am Drive is closed, especially during peak commuting hours. For those who use Pan Am Drive to park in Lot G, you will need to use the Military Road entrance point. We recommend building in extra time for your commute, especially during peak commuting hours.
Will the current Military Trail bus stop be relocated to make room for these onsite developments?
The current Military Trail bus stop will remain where it is, no relocation will be required.
