Ryerson University is situated in one of the most diverse cities in the world, and steps away from the busiest intersection in Canada. Main campus is located between College and Dundas station on the Yonge-University-Spadina TTC Subway line, and if travelling by subway you can exit either subway station to find Ryerson. If you’re driving, we’re located on Yonge Street one block north of Dundas or on Victoria Street, one block east of Yonge. For a detailed map of campus, including main intersections and important buildings please see this map: | View Campus Map |
