The Citadel has an accessible washroom located in the lobby at street level. Both Studio A and Studio B are accessible by a two person elevator located at the lobby level. Community members using mobility devices can use the elevator to access these spaces, however, it requires a staff member’s assistance to operate. We regret this obstacle to greater accessibility. The Citadel: Ross Centre for Dance is located near accessible transit stops at Parliament Street at Dundas Street East.
