September 24, 2020
York University has broken ground on its new Markham Centre Campus. This 10-storey, 400,000 square foot building will accommodate 4,200 students in its first phase, and will offer both degree programs and micro-credentials. YorkU says that the York region expects growth in the 18 to 22-year-old population, and that its Markham Centre Campus will meet the needs of students who want to study close to home. “By creating new opportunities for higher learning and entrepreneurship in the heart of one of Canada’s fastest-growing regions, the new campus will continue York’s longstanding role in building more prosperous, inclusive and resilient communities,” said YorkU President Rhonda L Lenton.  YorkU  (ON)
