University of Toronto Scarborough has broken ground on a residence building that will expand the current residence capacity at UTSC by 750 beds. The residence will include single and double occupancy bedrooms, accessible suites, study areas, a rooftop garden, and a food servery and dining hall where students can access meals seven days a week. Additionally, the Office of Student Experience & Wellbeing and Student Housing & Residence Life will be housed in the new building. UTSC says that this is also one of the largest passive house projects in North America. “This residence building signals our commitment to providing world-class education by investing in vital institutional infrastructures,” said Desmond Pouyat, dean of student experience and wellbeing.
