YorkU celebrates construction milestone for Markham Campus, $5M donation


During the celebration of a major construction milestone for its Markham Campus, York University shared that it had received a $5M donation from Metropia. At the topping-off ceremony, the final structural I-beam was signed by the university’s leaders and local dignitaries before being placed by a crane to complete the building’s frame. In honour of the $5M donation, which will go towards capital construction costs, York announced the newly named Metropia Student Success Centre. The centre will include the student success and academic advising office, an interfaith centre, multipurpose wellness studio, and more. The new campus will officially open in 2024.
