$74 million expansion for UofT's Robarts Library

February 4, 2008

The University of Toronto has endorsed a proposal that will see a new $74-million expansion added to the Robarts Library, which houses one of North America's largest academic collections. The plan will construct a third triangular tower, between the two existing towers, which was dropped from the building's original design due to cost. The expansion will mean 50% more student study space.  Student surveys have found that safe study room is an important issue.
