Previous Symposia and Conferences
Other Biology Student Hosted Conferences
The 44th Annual Biology Symposium will be held at York University in the Life Sciences Building and at Shopsy’s in York Lanes. York University can be accessed using transit from the TTC subway station that exits adjacent to York Lanes or using Go Transit. There are also multiple parking garages or pay and display areas for those driving. The closest parking garages to the Life Science Building is the Arboretum and to Shopsy’s is the York Lanes Parking garage. Full details about transit and driving directions or to access an interactive map can be obtained from the YorkU website.
All events will be held at Life Science building on the north-west side of campus, with the exception of the networking event that will be held at Shopsy’s. Please refer to the schedule for the exact room numbers.
