York University’s Bold Dream is Becoming an Exciting Reality
Opening Fall 2023
York University is moving forward with construction of its long-awaited Markham Centre Campus (MCC) to welcome our first students in the Fall of 2023. Once open, the new campus will create positive change in the York Region and City of Markham community, accommodating up to 4,200 students in Phase 1, with the flexibility to respond to future growth demands.
As a catalyst for learning, research and innovation, and an anchor institution within a strong and vibrant Region, our new state-of-the-art MCC campus will:
- Offer students innovative, relevant job-ready academic programming and research opportunities focusing on digital media, engineering and technology, entrepreneurship, new media and communications.
- Consolidate York University’s already strong academic presence in the City of Markham (YSpace, IBM Innovation Space – Markham Convergence Centre and the IBM Partnership).
- Help to fulfill York Region’s future labour market and civic leadership needs by providing transferable 21st century skills that are at the core of future economic competitiveness and community development in Markham, York Region, and across Ontario.
York University Markham Centre Campus will be urban, connected and integrated with local and global communities. Programs will revolve around core themes of technology and entrepreneurship, as applied in different contexts and professional fields. Students will acquire knowledge and skills to contribute to a rapidly changing economy and society through innovative programs where they interact directly with employers and community partners.
The Campus will specialize in flexible learning formats to serve a diverse population of students, including young adults, as well as mature and mid-career learners, students with disabilities, newcomers to Canada and workers impacted by technological change.
To honour the family’s significant contribution, we are naming the new atrium in the Markham Centre Campus “The Bratty Family Atrium”
