Travelling to Thunder Bay

We are excited to share that we have partnered with WestJet for a travel discount from anywhere WestJet flies in North America to Thunder Bay. Simply use the coupon code E52OYWM when booking online (or WNR48 over the phone) to receive 10% off Econo and 15% off Plus base fares.

Getting to Campus

The Thunder Bay International Airport is a 15-20 minute drive from the university, and taxis in Thunder Bay can be expensive. A city bus may be available, but can involve 2-3 transfers. To save money, we recommend sharing a taxi with other conference attendees. URide is a local ride-sharing app for Thunder Bay & District, available through the app store. New: URide now allows users to reserve a car ahead of time, and has a dedicated pickup spot at the Thunder Bay International Airport. 

On-Campus Accommodations

On-campus dormitory-style accommodations will be available for conference attendees. If you want to be close to the conference action and save money, this accommodation option is for you! 

Each room has a view and a firm twin bed, desk, mini-fridge, access to a shared lounge and free wifi. Wheelchair accessible rooms are available upon request. Click here for more information about our campus residences. Rooms can be booked through email ( or over the phone (1 (807) 343-8799). Credit, debit, and cash are accepted.
