How to find the Chebucto Community Net Office
Our office is general staffed Monday to Friday, 9:15 to 4:45. Chebucto
Community Net has its office on the campus of Dalhousie University.
Visitors should bring $.25 or $1.00 coins for the parking meters. We are
best accessed via the main entrance to Dalhousie on Coburg Road. Coburg
Road runs from the Northwest Arm crossing Oxford St. at a traffic signal
and continuing to a traffic signal at Robie St. The street name changes to
Spring Garden Road and continues on to Barrington St.
Via Oxford St.
The intersection of Coburg and Oxford Streets is marked by a traffic
signal, and brick office buildings with a Canadian Imperial Bank of
Commerce at ground level. Persons coming via Oxford St. should turn
slightly uphill at the light.
You will immediatley pass to your right a bus shelter and the entrance to
Kings College. Very shortly after, you will see a crosswalk, stone
gateway and black lettered, yellow sign for Lord Dalhousie Drive. Turn
Via Downtown or Robie St.
The intersection of Coburg and Robie Streets is marked by a traffic
signal, and several unique buildings. These include an octagonal Bank of
Nova Scotia branch, a professional center with a Lawtons at ground level,
a deli and a miniscule grassy park.
Persons coming via Robie St should turn slightly uphill at the traffic
signal. Coburg road will narrow and turn slightly. You will cross
multiple busy crosswalks, pass a Capitol Store on your left and come to
some stone buildings, also on your left as you begin to go down the other
side of a slight incline. You have just passed a Lawtons on your right
and now have a stone wall on your left. In a moment you will see one
more crosswalk, at least one red mailbox and a utility pole. Tucked
behind the utility pole is a stone gateway and black lettered, yellow
sign for Lord Dalhousie Drive. Turn left.
Finding a parking spot and our office
Lord Dalhousie Drive ends at a fourway stop. You will be forced to turn
right or left. First try left and proceed between two stone buildings
towards a parking lot. As you enter the lot turn right _immediately_ and
you will see three parking meters. Feed the meter and enter the stone
building you are facing. It is called the Chase Building and has a
second floor stone balcony. Enter the slate grey door, continue straight
past the staircase until you encounter the double doors of the library.
Turn right down the corridor where you will see room 125.
If necessary additional metered parking can be found on the opposite side
of the building. Return to the fourway stop and go straight through it.
Additional metered parking is available on your left. Enter the Chase
building via the door nearest the fourway stop. In the foyer, use the
doors on your right to enter a corridor. In the corridor, room 125 is the
first room on your right.
