All convocation ceremonies will take place at York University. Below you will find specific information on the location, parking, shuttle buses, guest seating and the reception.
The June and October convocations will take place at the Convocation Pavilion, Sobeys Stadium, situated at 1 Shoreham Drive, on the west side of the Keele Campus.
The Kellogg-Schulich EMBA ceremony in October takes place in the Seymour Schulich Building.
The June Glendon convocation will be held on the Glendon Green at the Glendon College Campus, located at 2275 Bayview Ave.
The main convocation parking lot is the Founders Road West lot which has a shuttle bus available to take guests to the Sobey's Stadium. The shuttle bus pick-up is on Founders Road on the west side near the walkway. Accessible parking will be available, for those with a valid medical placard, at the Shoreham Drive North parking lot. There is a guest pick-up and drop-off loop located off of Shoreham Drive across from the Sobey's Stadium.
Guests, students, and faculty have the option to take the subway to the Pioneer Village TTC Subway station, which is the nearest station to Sobey's Stadium. It provides convenient access to the venue. Additionally, a shuttle bus service will be available to transport individuals between the subway station and the stadium, subject to availability. If the shuttle bus is full, it will continue to loop, picking up passengers the next time around.
Complimentary parking will be offered for you and your guests to attend your ceremony in the Founders Road West lot. Parking Enforcement Officers will be stationed at the lot, screening vehicles upon entry. Should guests decide to park in an alternate visitor lot, the standard hourly/daily fee will be required.
