Nuit Blanche Space Closures at Lakeshore Campus

As part of the upcoming Nuit Blanche event taking place at the Lakeshore Campus on October 1 and 2, there will be a handful of space closures and impacts to the east side of the campus. The majority of the impacts will take place overnight and on the event weekend itself, but will see some closures to spaces that are typically open 24/7.

During the event weekend itself all cottages and L Building will be closed for the event and regular activities will be suspended until 7 p.m. on Sunday, October 2 at the latest; spaces will slowly be reopened during the day as post-event production wraps up.
