Current disruptions

Campus Recreation and Wellness Centre entrance closing

Please be advised that the north entrance access to the Campus Recreation and Wellness Centre (CRWC) will be closed Tuesday, December 20 from 8:30 a.m. to noon to facilitate a scissor truck for prep work, measurements and technical work in advance of the new CRWC sign being installed.  Access to the CRWC (Gyms, FLEX, Health Centre, Pharmacy, Photo ID)  will be through the Justice wing east entrance (Police Learning Centre entrance up the ramped area adjacent to UA)  or the CRWC south entrance from the courtyard.  

Road construction and potential delays getting to campus

Impact to employees/students: Ongoing road construction near the Durham College (DC) Oshawa campus could potentially result in longer than expected commutes for employees and students.

Please be advised the Region of Durham’s road widening project at Simcoe Street and Conlin Road just outside of the Oshawa campus will continue. The construction zone also includes the intersection at Conlin Road and Founders Drive.

Due to the construction, employees and students should be prepared for delays when driving or taking public transit to campus, particularly during peak travel hours. At all times, DC reminds you to allow for plenty of time to get to campus, and to travel with caution and care.

Construction updates are available at the Region of Durham’s Traffic Watch website. Durham Region Transit (DRT) updates are available on the DRT website.

In addition, pedestrians are encouraged to follow these safety rules at all times:

  • Always cross at an intersection where there is a traffic control device.
  • Avoid crossing in the middle of the block or between construction pylons.
  • Don’t expect cars to stop, they may have the right-of-way.
  • Watch for traffic turning at intersections.
  • Don’t text or use a wireless device while crossing the road.
  • Never cross on a red light or after the “Don’t Walk” traffic symbol begins to flash.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
