Your Space, Renewed

We’re growing, building and investing in the U of T Engineering community. Since 2009, we have worked to improve the quality of our space as well as increase its functionality. Examples include the renovations to the Office of the Registrar and First Year Office (GB 157 and GB 170); creation of a new Student Services Centre for MIE; the remodelling of SF 1105 (Lecture Theatre); the BioZone in Wallberg Building; Goldcorp Mining Innovation Suite in Lassonde Mining Building; and the IBBME Undergraduate Bio-Engineering Teaching Lab. Additional infrastructure renovations in Galbraith, Mechanical, as well as other buildings are underway. We are working diligently to bring our facilities up to the standards expected of a world-class institution.

We are also working toward a plan to construct a new engineering building on the parking lot behind Simcoe/Convocation Hall which is the last available location to build on campus. While still in the early stages, this exciting opportunity will be a cornerstone of our Boundless philanthropic campaign.
