Since its founding in 1959, York has grown exponentially. From its humble beginnings, York’s two campuses have expanded to cover more than 500 acres. These 500+ acres include six libraries, two main athletic centres, cinemas, studios, an indoor golf driving range and hundreds of lecture halls and classrooms. With their central GTA locations, both of our campuses are easily accessible by car or public transit.
Keele is a self-contained community located in the centre of the Greater Toronto Area. Five libraries, 92 buildings, athletic facilities, residences, a shopping mall and green, groomed outdoor common areas make up a buzzing campus primed for your academic success and an active campus life.
Keele is home to many of our research centres and many new state-of-the-art facilities, including the Sherman Health Sciences Research Centre and the new Life Sciences Building. While many of our programs are based here, Keele students are welcome to take courses at Glendon and vice-versa. Language programs and courses, such as French Studies, are available on both campuses.
Keele hosts Fall Campus Day in November and the Spring Open House in April. We encourage prospective students and their families to book campus tours and information sessions as well. Dates and details can be found on the Keele Campus Tours website.
Glendon is the only fully integrated bilingual Faculty of its kind in Canada and one of the only university campuses in Canada to specialize in liberal arts education. Students take courses in English, French or both, and often learn a third language. Glendon’s beautiful, park-like campus is set in a scenic mid-town neighbourhood, only moments from the boutiques, restaurants and nightlife of downtown Toronto.
Glendon offers unique international experiences with its range of international bachelor of arts degrees and bilingual and trilingual programs. With only 2,500 students attending classes at Glendon, students there will benefit from the small class sizes. Glendon also provides students with a wide range of support services – from advising to writing and academic assistance – and world-class athletic facilities. Glendon students are welcome to take advantage of the additional services and facilities offered at Keele Campus, which is easily accessible from Glendon through a free shuttle.
Glendon hosts Fall Campus Day on November 18, 2012, and the Spring Open House on March 3. Prospective students and their families are encouraged to book tours and attend information sessions in addition to these events. More information about tours and information sessions can be found on the Glendon Future Students Events website.
York University strives to be a post-secondary institution that's leading the way in sustainability. Our community of students, staff and faculty is committed to a holistic and equitable approach to taking action that recognizes the full consequences and benefits of what we do. Our long-term perspective recognizes our responsibility to be innovators and to continually work as a community to reduce our ecological impact.
As part of achieving that goal, we've established sustainability@yorku, a multifaceted initiative that serves as a hub for the many sustainability projects initiated by the University community. Among the many ways to get involved in this initiative, students can take pledges and sign up to be a sustainability ambassadors.
