The construction will help to meet some of the increasing demand for its professional certificate programmes. Currently, students attend classes at various locations throughout the campus and staff are spread across four buildings.

Our physical environment needs to be an extension of the quality of the education we're providing to our students. This building will allow us to bring innovation using the cutting-edge twisted design to create a world-class education experience in North America.

In March 2020, developers broke ground and began construction on the York University School of Continuing Studies' signature new 97,000 sq ft building.  Scheduled to open for students in fall 2021, the building will allow for expanded access to the English-language university pathways that support international students and new Canadians, and innovative programming to support professionals looking to pursue exciting careers in emerging and in-demand career fields.
