Children’s Building Driveway & Entrance Closure

Map of buildings indicating entry points and the closed Children's Building driveway and University Ave. entrance


As of August 14, 2023, the University Avenue entrance of the IWK Children’s Building is closed indefinitely as part of construction efforts for the new Emergency Department. You can access the Children’s Building through:

  • Link Building entrance via the Goldbloom Pavilion (M-F 0700hrs – 1700hrs)
  • Women’s Building University Avenue entrance
  • South Street entrance (M-F 0700hrs – 1700hrs)

Staff, patients and families should use caution when traveling in this area as the road will be narrower.

Five designated parking spaces will be installed on level 2 of the parking garage to facilitate patient pick-up and drop-off for those who normally use the Children’s Building driveway. There will be no fee for use of the IWK parking garage if less than 20 minutes.

We appreciate your patience and cooperation as we Build Better Care
