If you look at this campus map we are building #25. The main entrance of the library is off Central Square #27, just down the hall from the cafeteria and coffee shop.
On 17 December 2017 two new TTC subway stations opened on the Keele campus (York University and Pioneer Village stations). The new subway stations have brought changes to the York community with easy access to and from downtown Toronto, and in the way Regional Municipality of York /York Region transit operates with regard to the university.
