Hairy T M15 PTQ: Location and Parking


M15PTQLocationParkingTopBannerFinal


Located in the heart of downtown Toronto, Ryerson University’s Kerr Hall gymnasium provides ample space for more than 500 wizards and witches to wage cardboard warfare throughout the entire day. The Hall itself is located at 379 Victoria Street and is a mere 5 minute walk from both the Yonge/College and the Yonge/Dundas subway stations. You can also access the event from the doors on 31 Gerrard street if you desire – they both lead to the same building.

M15PTQDowntownParkingBanner


For those traveling by car, downtown Toronto offers a wide variety of parking options – but they aren’t always easy to find. For your convenience here is a map with numerous public parking lots labeled. Remember, every orange dot on the map is a public parking option – not just the spots marked with a letter tag. You may also be able to find pay meters on the street but visitors are advised that parking enforcement is aggressive in Toronto – if you park in restricted areas or in residential spots without tags you absolutely will be ticketed or towed.
