The University is ours! will take place at four separate venues across downtown Toronto:

1) Our introductory Friday afternoon session will be held at the Tartu College, 3, Madison Avenue.

Please note: unfortunately we just found out that the Tartu is not as accessible as we hoped, as one needs to walk a few steps down at the door. We are looking into the possibility of installing a few items that would accommodate people with disabilities. Washrooms are on the same floor.

2) The Friday evening event, featuring Brian Holmes and Sarah Sharma, will be held (in conjunction with the Communication and Culture Grad Student Conference on the theme of “Occupations”) at Ryerson University (Ryerson Student’s Centre, 63 Gould Street).
