Question for Ktichenerites

Howdie, for all you Kitchenerites, i was wanting to know how close/far the Kitchener Memorial Auditorium is from Wilfrid Laurier University, is it within walking distance, if not, is there an easy bus route to it?

Thanks

i'd say its walking distance, but directions arent really my thing...so you'd have to make sure

Well, if you're in great shape and feel like making the walk from WLU to the Aud, give it a try but leave yourself lots of time. If not, I'd suggest you take the bus. When I went to UW, I did happen to walk home from the Aud after Octoberfest but that was out of necessity, not desire.

Yeah im looking at the map right now, its pretty much as far as Waterloo, i just gotta get on Weber Street North, and that goes all the way to the Aud, and i'm sure theres a bus that goes along there

It's definitely not easy walking distance unless drunk or it's summer and you have an hour or so to waste.

I'm not really familiar with the bus routes, but I'd guess the mainline will get you close.

That is not the best way - more buses go down king and it's a much shorter walk from king to weber (& thus the aud) when you are at ottawa street. There is also a bus stop on king street right on Lauriers campus.

Good luck at Laurier - go hawks !!

Yeah, you can catch a bus right downtown and walk the rest of the way, should only take 15 minutes of walking if you get off at the right place. Another 15 minutes for the bus, depending on how busy it is.

The arena where the Golden Hawks play is quite close, 10-15 minute walk from campus. Go to some Hawks games, I didnt' start doing it till my last year and now I regret it. Parties tend to get in the way I suppose...
