Yukon University invites you to consider our facilities at our Ayamdigut Campus in Whitehorse when planning your special event or conference. Depending on your requirements, we can generally accommodate smaller events up to 100 persons at any time through the year. However, the best time for larger events is the period between the last week of April to the end of August, or the University’s reading week (which normally coincides with the public school break in Whitehorse).
The University is open year round. We have a large gymnasium for trade shows, exhibitions, plenary sessions or formal dinners. Our classrooms vary from smaller 12 seat classrooms, various “flexible space” places, to the 80 seat lecture hall. Our computer labs are equipped with current technology (please see attached for more information).
In addition our cafeteria is available during the school year to satisfy many of your catering needs (snacks and lunches). The cafeteria dining area is a large naturally lit space with seating up to 299 persons. Our bookstore carries convenience items as well as a collection of Yukon University souvenir items to mark your northern experience. As well, our residences are often available during the May to August period for use by event participants. There are over 75 single rooms available.
The Ayamdigut Campus is located on a scenic hill top and is surrounded on three sides by forest with a system of marked hiking trails. The site is serviced by the City transit system and is considered handicapped accessible.
