Master Plan in Action
The UTSC campus will change dramatically over the coming years. More academic space and student space is on the immediate horizon, and more is planned as part of a long-term expansion.
UTSC is responding to a growing student populace by expanding its facilities into the North Campus. New teaching and research facilities, gathering and event space, and more, are all part of the plans to support an exciting academic curriculum and opportunities for a vibrant student life. Our expansion plans will position UTSC even more as a robust pillar in the tri-campus system of University of Toronto, and a centre for cultural and intellectual life in the eastern GTA.
UTSC's new Master Plan sets out how the North Campus will evolve over the next 25 to 50 years. Through a process of consultation with the University and local communities and planners from the City of Toronto over the past two years, we are creating detailed designs of how the North Campus will grow as a central hub.
When the Instructional Centre, opens in March 2011, it will be the first building to establish the North Campus, and will be followed quickly by the new Aquatics and Athletics Facility, which will be constructed in partnership with the City of Toronto, to open a year in advance of the 2015 Pan American Games. (See information below.)
Key planned features of the North Campus:
UTSC has come a long way from the one-building campus launched in 1964. With the North Campus expansion underway, UTSC is set to lead far into the twenty-first century.

The new Instructional Centre will increase the total space for academic life on the UTSC campus by an impressive 25 per cent! With its location on the northwest corner of Ellesmere Road and Military Trail, the Instructional Centre will also create a highly visible gateway for the entire UTSC campus. Construction on this state-of-the-art building began in September 2009. Students can expect to enjoy their first classes in the Instructional Centre for the May 2011, Summer Term.
A Visual Experience:
The Instructional Centre is just the first part of UTSC's new North Campus expansion. Advanced preparations are ongoing on the Aquatics and Athletics Facility, being built for the 2015 Pan American Games which were recently awarded to the City of Toronto. Read more
Extending UTSC’s Reach: Prominent Northern Location
Located at the northeast corner of Morningside Avenue and Military Trail immediately south of the 401, the Pan Am Aquatics and Athletics Facility will surpass the square footage of every other building at UTSC, comprising over 360,000 square feet when it opens in 2015.

Built for the University and the Community
Planned and owned jointly with the City of Toronto, the Aquatics and Athletics Facility will serve the University and the local community long after the 2015 Pan American Games are over.
An Exciting Future for Students:
With the Instructional Centre opening in early 2011 and the Pan Am facility not long after, the University's Master Plan vision for the future is quickly becoming an exciting reality. Working with the local community, UTSC is creating a unique and engaging university experience that will benefit generations of students to come.
