YURA is now housed in temporary quarters in Room W129A in the Bennett Centre, the face building on the Student Services Parking Garage, located just south of the Schulich School of Business and within easy walking distance from the York University subway station. This office is on the first floor of the west wing of the building. The easiest way to find the office is to enter the Bennett Centre at its southwest doors on Ian Macdonald Blvd. just north of the new Continuing Studies Building near The Pond Road. Once inside these doors, we are in the suite located on the left side of the corridor. From the Student Services Parking Garage, this same corridor can be accessed from the southwest exit of the garage on the ground level. There are directional signs.
Please follow the instructions posted at the suite entrance by calling the YURA phone number, 416.736.2100 extn. 70664 and we will greet you at the suite entrance. The YURA Office is open Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
In early January 2023, the YURA Office moved from 101 Central Square, an office location our Association had enjoyed for more than twenty years. This move took place so that the University can provide additional space needed by Student Accessibility Services in the Ross-Central Square core.
YURA will move to a more permanent location in the Lorna Marsden Honour Court on York Blvd., across from the York University subway station in August 2023.
YURA Office hours are:
September through June - Tuesdays, Wednesday and Thursdays, 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
July and August - The office is closed, however, email and phone messages are monitored intermittently.
During office hours, all retirees or prospective retirees are most welcome to visit the volunteer staff at the YURA Office.
While the Association maintains its office in W129A Bennett Centre, membership applications, fees and other correspondence are to be mailed or submitted to our staff liaison in the Faculty Relations Office at the following address.
