Seneca is planning for the largest infrastucture expansion in its history, with new facilities opening at King and Newnham campuses.
Move forward with construction of the Centre for Innovation, Technology and Entrepreneurship (CITE), Magna Hall and the artificial turf field and dome
- CITE’s programming, academic research and entrepreneurship space planning requirements were finalized in anticipation of the building’s opening in January 2019, while construction progressed on schedule and on budget
- Magna Hall’s construction remains on schedule and within budget; operational plans and agreements with the Seneca Student Federation and Student Athletic Association are being finalized
2017-18 In Review: Maximizing Our Spaces And Resources
The expected openings of Magna Hall at King Campus and 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.
This series of phased and orderly program, school and department moves, known as Seneca2020, is the largest undertaking in Seneca’s history, involving 6,000 students and 900 employees by the time the moves are complete in 2020.
As outlined in our 2017-22 Strategic Plan, Seneca2020 underscores our commitment to great student and employee experiences and to cross-disciplinary learning. It also allows Seneca to unite all administrative areas in one location for the first time in our history. These exciting moves will shape Seneca’s future for years to come.
Official openings of the StingDome at Seneca Fields
In fall 2017, Seneca opened a new state-of-the-art facility called the StingDome at Seneca Fields, consisting of a multi-purpose artificial turf field and a seasonal dome. The project was made possible by funding from the Student Athletic Association and the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program. An official opening for Seneca Fields was held in September 2017, and in January 2018, the official opening of the StingDome took place. Geng Tan, MP, Don Valley North, was in attendance at both events.
