York’s new Markham Campus is on track to welcome students in Fall 2024

With the building’s structure now completed, York’s new Markham Campus is on track to officially welcome students in Fall 2024. The campus will offer leading edge, future-focused programs in technology and entrepreneurship, among others, which will equip students with the skills they need to succeed in a rapidly-changing economy.  

The new Digital Technologies program, for example, will allow students to spend up to 80 per cent of their time in a paid work environment, where they will gain real world experience and immediately apply their classroom learning. The program launched in Fall 2023 and is being held at the Learning Space in IBM Canada’s headquarters while the new campus is under construction.

Markham Campus is already contributing to York’s growth in partnerships and transformative gifts, including a $5 million contribution from Metropia in 2023, as well as several student support contributions from various organizations. The City of Markham and York Region is one of the most diverse and dynamic urban communities in Ontario and Canada, and this new campus will continue York’s commitment to building equitable and inclusive communities.
