Arriving by plane: From Toronto Pearson International Airport, consider three options for transportation to Guelph:

(1) Rent a car. Take Hwy 401 West (London direction), turn North at the exit 299, drive straight (~12km) until the road becomes Gordon Street. The two hotels will be on your left (Delta) and right (Best Western) just before the cross-section with the Stone Road, and the campus will be in front of you. If you need Visitors Parking, make the first right turn after you pass the Stone Road and you will see a booth in ~150m. The whole trip takes <1hr on a good day (sorry, 401 is the busiest highway in Canada).
(2) Book a shared ride shuttle service Red Car (~160$ for a round trip).
(3) Take bus 192 'Airport Rocket' to subway Kipling station, then take subway to Dundus station (switch line at Bloor-Yonge, see subway map), then walk to Toronto Coach Terminal (610 Bay Street) and take a bus to Guelph from there. Most busses make a stop on the University campus (ask the driver). It is ~5 min walk to any of the hotels or student residences.

Arriving by bus: See (3) above.
Arriving by car: See (1) above.
