The Western campus is centrally located in London, Ontario—or what the locals call, "the Forest City". London is located in Southwestern Ontario, just a two-hour drive from Toronto, Niagara Falls, and Detroit. With easy local and international access, a vibrant social scene, and plenty of surrounding nature, London is the perfect location for guests near and far.

Guests staying a little longer will love London’s dynamic community. With our Grand Theatre, various music venues, and the London Art Museum, we have a lot of culture to share. Let us leverage our Tourism London partner relationships to suggest an off-site venue for a unique conference experience.
Those looking to escape the bustle of the city will enjoy nature-filled walking trails both centrally located, and conservation areas within 20 minutes of the city. With the Thames River running through our city and campus, we have over twenty nearby natural areas currently designated as Environmentally Significant Areas.
Western is a great place to host a conference. The campus is stunning, the people are very, very friendly, and London is a great city in general. So coming in to host an event here would be a great opportunity for people to have a venue with a visual appeal, and all the amenities and services that you could need.
