Impacts to college campuses due to flooding

Flood recovery UPDATE

(September 17, 2018)

This is a follow-up on the status of two of our buildings impacted by the flooding we experienced in August.

Waterfront Campus

Work continues and will require a longer-term effort before services can be reopened on the lower level, at the bookstore and the parking elevator.  

A pop-up alternative bookstore has been set up on the second floor and we will keep you informed of permanent solutions as they evolve. Access from the parking garage to the concourse level using the service elevator is available 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Anyone who needs access from the parking garage outside of these hours can notify security at (416) 415-4000 or (416) 415-5000 ext. 8000. 

St. James Campus

Stairway 13 will be closed off this week. This stairway is located in the middle of the building and travels from the 5th floor to ground level, exiting onto Adelaide Street. This will enable repair of the ceilings and some walls that were damaged during the recent flood. All exit doors to the stairway will be tarped off and signed. Directional signage will also be posted to indicate the closest alternate exits. 

Stairway 14 on the Adelaide Street side of the building remains only partially accessible (but available in the event of an emergency) and should be fully repaired at the end of intersession week in October.
