Travel

The conference is being held at the Toronto School of Theology (TST), which is located at 47 Queen’s Park Crescent East, Toronto, ON M5S 2C3.

If you are arriving by subway, Museum station is the closest. Take the south east exit and walk south on Queen’s Park Crescent to St. Joseph Street.

If you are arriving by car, the closest parking lot is behind the TST building on St. Joseph Street. The lot is cash only and tickets can be purchased from the Porter’s desk.

If you are arriving by plane, there are a number of ground transportation options available. The Union Pearson Express trains run from Pearson Airport to Union station in downtown Toronto every 15min and a return ticket costs $24.70. From Union station take the University subway line north to Museum station.

Accommodation

For those of you travelling to Toronto for the conference, on-campus accommodation at St. Michael’s College is available. Single rooms range from $53–$64 per night and double rooms range from $78–$94 per night, both of which use shared washroom facilities. A limited number of ensuite rooms are available at an increased rate. Accessible rooms are also available in Sorbara Hall.

All bookings must be made directly with St. Michael’s College by contacting Apostolo Zeno at usmc.bookings@utoronto.ca no later than April 30th. Identify yourself with the TMTC Graduate Student Conference and indicate any accessibility requirements. You will then be provided with a credit card authorization form to complete your reservation. Please note that there are several camps and conferences taking place at the university in June and accommodation is allocated on a first come, first served basis so you are encouraged to reserve a room early.

Travel Bursary

The conference planning committee has a limited amount of funding available to assist those in financial need who are presenting and not able to secure funding from their home institutions to defray the costs of travel. Those who wish to apply should complete the appropriate section on the registration form.

Recipients of travel bursaries are expected to use the most cost-effective mode of transportation available. In general, this means economy class airfare if arriving by plane and, if driving more than 200kms, the equivalent cost of a rental car plus gas. Carpooling is encouraged where possible.  Reimbursement for eligible travel expenses will be made only with the submission of relevant supporting receipts. Due to the limited funding available, travel bursaries will cover airfare, rental car, and gas expenses only and will not cover associated expenses such as accommodation, meals, registration fees, parking, and ground transportation to/from airports.

Refunds and Additional Questions

If for some reason you are not able to attend the conference, full refunds are available until 31 May 2018. If you have any additional questions please contact us.
