Accommodation

Please make your own arrangements for accommodation as required. Below are some suggestions:

On-campus residence: University of Guelph Summer Hostel

Off-campus hotel: Delta HotelDays Inn Hotel (driving distance from the university), Holiday Inn Hotel (driving distance from the university).

On Campus

The Bullring (best for vegetarian), University Centre Food Court (lots of options) and Grad Pub (University Centre 5th floor) are all good options. Starbucks in the Library has coffee and snacks. There is Gryphs Sports Lounge above the rink across from the Athletics Centre. There are also food trucks on campus occasionally.

Off Campus

Not many grocery options nearby, so if you want to get some you might want to do this on the first night you are in town. No Frills is close by near the Delta Hotel, about a 15-minute walk from the residences and will cover most needs. Metro at the intersection of Stone Road and Edinburgh Road is the closest full-service grocery store. Goodness me at the bottom of Gordon St by Wellington has organic and health food.

Restaurants/Pubs

Guelph has a great selection of restaurants, and many local breweries. Below is a selection of them: but we really encourage you to get downtown and explore beautiful Guelph!

Shakespeare’s Arms  - Good beer, pub food, and close to campus!
 
Baker Street Station - Slightly more upscale pub experience, lots of drink options, great beer choices, nice wine list,  great food
 
Earth to Table Bread Bar - New to the Guelph area, handcrafted food and great pizza. Vegetarian options available.
 
Buon Gusto - Italian Restaurant, good pizza and pasta. Vegetarian options available.
 
The Albion Hotel  - Oldest pub in Guelph, with a great selection of beer and food.
