Students who live in York Region will soon be able to study close by, with easy access to transit on campus. Construction is well underway for York University’s long-awaited Markham Campus. The campus will open in Spring 2024. 

The new campus will embed York University in the heart of Markham, one of the most diverse and dynamic cities in Canada. It’s an ideal home for a community of positive changemakers, with opportunities for students and faculty to collaborate directly with employers, startups and community partners to right the future. Markham is also home to YSpace Markham and the IBM Innovation Space — Markham Convergence Centre.

Physically, Markham Campus will accommodate 4,200 students and is being designed to facilitate collaboration between programs and faculties. This will promote unexpected connections, bringing people together to create positive change. 

Campus Features

Modern and accessible common areas offer plenty of space to meet, study and collaborate with large and small groups

Ten floors of teaching and learning spaces are clustered around a dynamic, multi-story atrium — the Bratty Family Atrium

A multi-faith space, Indigenous learning circle and enhanced accessibility features create a welcoming environment

Campus Progress

On April 17, 2021, construction of Markham Campus reached a milestone with the pouring of the foundation or “raft slab.” Pouring of the eighth floor was completed in Summer 2022. Electrical and plumbing on the lower levels are progressing well.
