The opening of Magna Hall at King Campus and the Centre for Innovation, Technology and Entrepreneurship (CITE) at Newnham Campus have provided Seneca with the opportunity to:

  • Take maximum advantage of all of our spaces
  • Provide synergy among programs and schools
  • Ease crowding at our campuses
  • Enhance our students’ campus and academic experience.

Seneca2020 is a phased, orderly schedule of program and department moves that will take place over the next two years. It has been coordinated by a team from across Seneca’s academic and support areas.

It is the biggest series of moves in Seneca’s history and will involve 6,000 student spaces and 900 employees between summer 2018 and 2020. As outlined in our Strategic Plan, Seneca2020 underscores our commitment to great student and employee experiences and to cross-disciplinary learning.
