Visit Us

A New York Times article proclaimed Leslieville as "...the coolest neighborhood in Toronto to shop, eat and drink." We think they should add woodworking to the list!

If you’re planning a visit to the UW, you’ll find us on the corner of Thackeray & Dickens St. in Leslieville.

Our signs are in the windows on the corner! The building is on the North / West Corner of Dundas & Carlaw, but it’s best to enter around back near the loading dock or from the South side under the pink awning.

For GPS and Google Maps use: 4 Thackeray Street Toronto, Ontario


Getting Around

Public Transporation

There are numerous public transit options to get you to UW. The Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) is a great and affordable option for most at only $3.25 for a one-way trip. The closest streetcar and bus stop is Queen and Carlaw, a 5-minute walk from the school. You can also take a yellow cab or Uber for direct drop-off.


Getting to UW by car is very easy. From the 401 its a quick drive south on the Don Valley Parkway (DVP), if you are coming from the Gardner Expressway (QEW) or Lakeshore Boulevard simply take Carlaw Avenue north to Dundas Street.


Biking in Toronto is very easy with many dedicated bike lanes all over the city and direct to UW on Dundas Street. We also have the Bike Share Toronto system if you don’t have access to a bike.
