WordCamp Toronto 2014 takes place at Humber College’s Lakeshore Campus in Toronto’s west end. We’re in the L building – a modern, high-tech venue used by Humber College’s School of Media Studies & IT.
19 Colonel Samuel Smith Park Drive
Toronto, Ontario, Canada M8V 4B6
The L building is fully accessible with wheelchair ramps and elevator access to all floors. If you require assistance, one of our organizers or volunteers will be happy to help. (More info to come about our accessibility initiative for 2014!)
The venue is monitored 24/7 by campus security. That said, WordCamp Toronto and Humber College are not responsible for any lost, stolen, or damaged items. This is an active campus; people will be coming and going throughout the event. Be safe, keep your belongings with you.
The security office is located in the Tim Hortons building opposite the L building’s main entrance.

Lot A (West Campus)
(Map is from last year, but the locations are the same.)
The entrance to Lot A is just off Twenty Second Street south of Lake Shore Blvd. West. Twenty Second Street is the street immediately west of Kipling Ave. Turn south at the lights and head down a short way. There shouldn’t be an attendant, so drive right through and park in the north-east section of the lot.
Take the eastbound path to Col. Samuel Smith Park Drive. Building L is just south of the path on the opposite side of the street.
- Parking is absolutely free! Park in the Humber Lakeshore West lot (entrance is on 23rd Street) and take the pedestrian path to the Humber Lakeshore East campus.
- Additional free parking is available in the following Green P lots:
1 Colonel Samuel Smith Park Drive (Just north of L building)
65 Colonel Samuel Smith Park Drive (South of L building towards the water)
- There’s a Tim Hortons outside the L Building. (Yes, this is important.)
