Getting to London

Traveling By Air

The London airport (YXU) is served by Air Canada (direct from Toronto, Ottawa and Winnipeg), United (direct from Detroit) and WestJet (direct from Calgary and Winnipeg). The cab ride from the airport to UWO should cost 20-25.

Traveling By Rail

The VIA Rail station on York St. has a number of trains each day from Toronto (and points east) and from Windsor (and points west). Richmond St. borders the VIA Rail station parking lot on the west (go left when you exit the station). Travel to campus can be completed by cab or by walking to Richmond St. and taking the #6 bus.

Traveling By Automobile

From the 401:
  • Take the Wellington St. exit north (#186).
  • When Wellington St. ends (at Pall Mall St.), turn left and go 1 block.
  • When Pall Mall St. ends, turn right onto Richmond St.
  • Continue north approximately 2 km to the east entrance to UWO.
  • The entrance is marked by the UWO gates and you’ll see the gates on your left very soon after Richmond St. bends left. (Note, this is the only east entrance to UWO. If you drive by it, turn left at the first stop light (Windermere Rd.), then left again at the second stoplight (Western Rd.) and enter campus from the west entrance.)
From the 402:
  • Take the Highway 81 exit north (#65).
  • Turn right at the first stoplight onto Highway 22 east. Highway 22 becomes Fanshawe Park Rd.
  • Take Fanshawe Park Rd. all the way into London, turning right onto Richmond St just after going down a large hill.
  • After about 1 km, Richmond St. curves left.
  • At that point, continue going (essentially) straight by exiting off of Richmond St. onto Western Rd.
  • Continue about 500 m to the west entrance to UWO.
  • London Hall is another 1 km along Western Rd.
