York’s bold new Campus Vision is intentionally inclusive, sustainable, and welcoming to our neighbours.
Through re-imagining 190 acres of land at Keele campus, our Campus Vision actively supports the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
Living Well Together begins with:
- reinvigoration of the Harry W. Arthurs Common, the location of York University station on the new Yonge-University Subway line
- development of four new neighbourhoods within the Keele Campus including:
- a commercial centre
- a high-tech district
- a primarily residential district
- a second residential, commercial, and athletic neighbourhood closer to the Pioneer Village station
As an anchor institution, this new vision plays important role – as a hub and resource for surrounding communities. Learn more below about President Rhonda Lenton's vision, where university and city, academia and industry, people and culture will meet and thrive:
