Campus road closures block inner circle

This Wednesday and Thursday UTM students, especially those that use the UPASS, will have to reroute their usual commute to campus. The Middle Entrance and Inner Circle Road will be blocked to traffic between the hours of 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.

The reason behind the road closures is related to the renovation project taking place beside the Student Centre.

Workers will be transporting 18 prefabricated units to the construction site that will be the new Academic Annex. The construction  began late last semester.

Parking in the Inner Circle will be restricted to only those with an Accessible Parking Permit.

For students that drive to campus, either the North Entrance (closest to Burnhamthorpe Road) or the Collegeway Entrance (closest to Dundas Road) can be accessed.

For students that are normally picked up at the South Building, be sure to let your ride know to wait somewhere else.

The UTM Shuttle Bus will arrive and depart only from the North Building stop.

For students that depend on Mississauga Transit, the routes have changed enough to cause possible late arrivals to lectures, tutorials, and seminars.

Students are advised to plan their routes to and from the UTM campus with the closure in mind.

Here are the temporary route alterations, provided by the university administration.
