To get to the University of Waterloo from the 401:

  • Take exit 278 (Highway 8 West).
  • Follow Highway 8 West to Highway 7 East (an expressway called the Conestoga Parkway; be sure to take the exit for Highway 7 East, not Highway 7 West).
  • Keep left; do not exit on Highway 7 East (Victoria St and Guelph). Expressway becomes Highway 85 North (formerly 86).
  • Exit at University Avenue West and drive about 2 miles (3 km).
  • After you cross the railroad tracks (there is a big plaza on your right), take the Seagram Street entrance into campus, and turn left onto Ring Road. Visitor parking is available near the main entrance (see below for more information).

Bus routes

The University of Waterloo is serviced by several routes along the Grand River Transit municipal bus line. Please contact Grand River Transit at (519) 585-7555 or see their Trip Planner for information on how to reach the University of Waterloo by bus from your area. You will want to get off the bus in front of the Hagey Hall for the Humanities Theatre.

Once on campus

The Anxiety Studies Division of the Centre for Mental Health Research is located on the third floor of the Psychology, Anthropology, Sociology (PAS) building. You may park in the Visitor’s Lot (Parking Lot H). Lot H is immediately on the left of the Seagram Street entrance to campus (view the map). There are two entrances to Lot H; please use the second entrance across from the PAS building. Do not use the entrance with the parking attendant booth. Please note: Lot H requires a $3.00 coin entry fee.

Across from Parking Lot H, you will see a set of stairs and a sign reading “Psychology/Anthropology/Sociology Building”. Proceed up the stairs and into the building. Elevators are on your left inside the set of double glass doors. Go up to the third floor. There is a waiting area right outside the elevator on the third floor where the researcher will meet you.
