Ryerson to turn to private sector for residence expansion

March 3, 2010

According to The Eyeopener, a student newspaper, Ryerson University will soon put out requests for proposals asking private developers to add up to 2,000 residence spaces to accommodate the school's growing student population. Ryerson president Sheldon Levy says he wants to expand the campus and link Maple Leaf Gardens with residences, though actual locations would depend on the proposals received. Levy says turning to the private sector is the only option to increase housing. "It becomes the difference between affordable and not affordable." The Eyeopener (student newspaper)
