TD Waterhouse Stadium The state-of-the-art TD Waterhouse Stadium, which opened in 2000, is conveniently located on the beautiful campus of The University of Western Ontario, in London, Ontario.

Situated near the corner of Western and Sarnia Road, the field is CFL regulation size featuring an infill turf playing surface with a 2" rubberized e-layer. Bordering the field is an eight-lane, 400-metre mondo track.

Western's new turf causes less burn on legs and is better for mobility, while also decreasing the potential for injury seen with other turf products. 

The 1000 lumens lighting is perfect for television coverage and for evening events. Spacious change rooms with shower facilities, equipment, training and referee rooms, address most of the needs of the athletes, and seating is available for over 8,000 spectators, with concession and vending services also provided. 

The fully licensed Labatt Lounge offers the perfect vantage point to watch the game. The lounge area, which can be booked for special events, accommodates 120 guests and the floor to ceiling windows provide a great vide of the north end of the playing field. Smaller meeting rooms are also available.

Home to the Western Mustangs' football team, the facility was proud to host the 2001 Canada Games, PanAm Field Hockey Championships, the World Transplant Games, the Ontario Paralympic Championships, the 2006 World Lacrosse Championships and the 2010 Special Olympics Canada Summer Games.

Testimonials

  • Dear Conference Services:

    As the local host for ASV 2015 it was a distinct pleasure working with the crew at Conference Services.  As academics and scientists we do not have a clue on how to organize meetings.  Thankfully though, in working with a professional and courteous staff the process became much simpler and the experience was very enjoyable.  Conference Services at Western has organized hundreds of meetings and they are fully aware of the fine details required to make an event be successful.  This is not an easy task especially since delegates were coming from over 25 countries across the world.  Moreover, the catering service provided by Western was second to none and delegates were very impressed.  Our marquee event was the banquet where we hosted 1,200 delegates to a sit-down dinner.  Conference Services was able to service our guests in under 30 minutes.  This is indicative of superior, excellent and unparalleled service.  Not only was the service efficient, the food was of very high quality and appreciated by hundreds.  One specific example that speaks volumes of this crew is the following:  when conference services understood that delegates from a specific geographic region were staying in a residence, they modified the breakfast selection menu to ensure that our guests from abroad enjoyed a taste of home.

    It was a pleasure working with this wonderful team!

  • Dear Conference Services:

    Thank you so much for your wonderful work to make our CSWIP conference, Feminism, Philosophy, and Engaging the Public, such a success.   All weekend people were commenting how down to the last detail the organizing was and how fabulous the catering was.  Everything was fantastic and your efforts to help us realize our hopes for the event were above and beyond.  I will never consider another conference again without you.
