York University/Seneca campus in Markham
The York University proposal for a new campus in Markham, with Seneca as its academic partner, has been selected by the Ontario government to proceed. Reza Moridi, Minister of Training, Colleges and Universities, announced that the proposed York/Seneca campus was chosen from among 19 proposals from universities to locate or expand campuses. The new campus will build on our already strong relationship with York through our existing program and campus partnerships and offer new options for students in Markham, York Region and beyond.
York’s Yes to York website has more information about the new campus.
David Agnew, Seneca President, speaking at the announcement
The campus will be located north of Highway 407 between Kennedy Road and Warden Avenue in the new Markham Centre area, which includes the Markham Pan Am Centre, the Unionville GO station and significant commercial and residential projects. The new campus will accommodate 4,000 York and Seneca students in the initial phase. The success of this proposal is based on the long-standing successful partnership between York and Seneca with the strong financial support of the City of Markham and York Region
