UOIT considers leasing downtown space due to campus crowding

April 17, 2008

The University of Ontario Institute of Technology is considering a 10 to 15 year lease on a former ScotiaBank building in downtown Oshawa, to alleviate a campus space crunch caused by a 24% jump in applications.  Without adding space off-campus, the school is faced with building portables.  Leasing the downtown building would cost about 60% less than building portables on the school's campus.  One option would be to relocate BEd classes downtown. Durham Region News
