Notice of service disruption

Current Disruption(s)

April 18

Access to the Campus Recreation and Wellness Centre (CRWC) and parking in the Champions North lot will again be impacted by construction required for roof steel hoisting on Wednesday, April 18 from 6:30 a.m. until approximately 8:30 p.m. In the event of inclement weather, this work may be extended to include Thursday, April 19.

During this time, members of the campus community are strongly encouraged to use the south entrance to access the CRWC and Campus Health Centre, as well as the pharmacy, which will all remain open during their normal hours of operation.

Drivers are also encouraged to park in the Champions South lot or Founders 2 lot during this time as parking in the Champions North lot will be significantly reduced. The CRWC north entrance will remain safely accessible throughout the day, however pedestrians may be required to divert around the parking lot to reach the north entrance.

The construction is connected to the G Wing renovations currently underway at the college’s Oshawa campus and will involve the use of a crane that will be set up to the east of the CRWC north entrance. Care has been taken to coordinate the lifting of new equipment by crane over unoccupied space only. There will be no crane lifting activity over the CRWC gyms, Campus Health Centre or pharmacy.

February 9

Lane Restrictions on Champlain Avenue and Thornton Road

Please be advised that beginning the week of February 12, the Regional Municipality of Durham will begin construction of a new sanitary sewer and watermain for the future Consumers Drive extension. This work will require daily lane restrictions on Champlain Avenue and Thornton Road starting the week of February 19 from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. daily.

This project is expected to be completed by the end of April however, unfavourable weather conditions may influence the work schedule.  The region realizes that the construction work will be disruptive and will make every effort to complete the work as quickly and efficiently as possible.

November 18

Whitby main entrance closed due to construction

Please be advised that the front entrance of the Whitby campus will be closed beginning in the evening of Sunday, November 19, scheduled to reopen spring 2018. To access the Whitby campus employees, students and visitors will use the North entrance, adjacent to shipping and receiving.

This is being done to support one of our 50th Anniversary construction projects. The Whitby campus main entrance is being remodeled to provide touchdown space and collaboration areas for the more than 2,000 students who call Whitby campus home. This project was funded by the $1.9 million provided by the provincial government in honour of our 50th anniversary.

Updates on this project will be communicated as they become available.
