Seneca College’s Magna Hall, located in King City just north of Toronto, is expanding its existing facility in the largest revitalization project in the college’s history, to increase teaching and learning capacity from 3,500 to 5,000 full-time students. The project, delivered through an Alternative Financing and Procurement model with Infrastructure Ontario, is expected to be complete by spring of 2018.
The project will target LEED Gold and expand the campus’ facilities by 200,000 square feet with 25 new classrooms, computer labs, specialty labs for training, a library, learning commons and student study space, a new student area with a multi-purpose athletic and recreation space, gymnasium, fitness centre, informal study areas and event spaces.
The expansion will provide more space for students to learn and help Seneca expand its training facilities to support a range of programs, such as its diverse primary health care programs. Additional classrooms and labs will allow new courses to be offered at the King Campus to better meet the evolving needs of industry and families in York Region.
