Soldiers' Tower Visit Sign-Up

Located adjacent to Hart House, the Soldiers' Tower is a memorial to the 1185 members of the University (including the 140 from Engineering) who gave their lives in the cause of peace and freedom during the two World Wars.

***MEMORIAL ROOM GUIDED TALK*** (sign-up form below)

In light of the centenary of WWI, we especially invite engineering students to visit and receive a guided talk of the artifacts in the Memorial Room of the Soldiers' Tower.
Though not specific to Engineering, there are several artifacts on display pertaining to Skule(TM) that will be of interest.

You may visit during any one of the 4 times:

Friday Nov. 7 @ 1:15 & 2:15 pm
Sunday Nov. 9 @ 12:30 & 1:45 pm

Drop-in is also welcome Sunday Nov. 9 between the designated guided talk times (the room is open 12-3pm). Bells in the tower will ring 12-1pm that day.

Guided talk will be approximately 20-30 minutes in length and will be restricted to 20 students each.

Once you submit this form, you will receive a confirmation via e-mail within 48 hours.

Sign-up will close approximately 24 hours before each date of visit.

If there is any reason you cannot attend anymore, please inform the Archivist ASAP, to allow others on the tour.

Any further concerns can be directed to the Archivist (

***CARILLON TOURS*** (separate sign-up process)

A limited number of tours of the carillon area of the Tower is offered every year, so take the chance while you can!

Quick fact: One of the carillon bells was donated by the Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering.

Special tours will be given during the month of November at the following times:

Sunday Nov. 9 @ 1 pm
Tuesday Nov. 18 @ 1:10 pm
Wednesday Nov. 19 @ 4:55 pm
Friday Nov. 21 @ 12:55 pm.

Tours will take approximately 30 minutes each, and are limited to the first 10 people who sign up.

These tours are managed by the Soldiers' Tower Committee. For more information and to sign up for the carillon tours, please contact Kathy Parks at
