Directions & Accessibility


We are located on the 2nd Floor of the East Wing (closest to St. George Street and just above the Innis College Registrar Office). The library can be accessed by stairs or elevator, however the Library’s entrance does not open automatically but our staff is happy to provide assistance.


The upper levels of the library are accessed by stairs. Please contact the Library to make arrangements if you need to access the upper level computer lab by speaking with library staff or emailing the College Librarian. Please note that we now have computers on the main floor of the library.
