Trent University Durham Greater Toronto Area has unveiled expansion plans for its Oshawa campus that includes a proposed $26 million building recently approved by the Trent University Board of Governors.
The building will combine academic and residential space, lecture halls, classrooms and faculty offices in a full living/learning community. The integration of academic, administrative and student living space will foster a scholarly community experience.
“The expansion of the Trent University Durham GTA campus will provide even more students with access to a postsecondary education and to a growing range of degree programs right here in Oshawa,” said Oshawa Mayor John Henry. “We’re excited to see the expansion plans continue to unfold and we look forward to updates and the ground-breaking.”
“Trent’s long and fruitful relationship with the City of Oshawa has been key to our success at the Durham campus,” said Joe Muldoon, head of Trent University Durham GTA. “As we announce a major expansion of our presence in Oshawa, introduce new undergraduate and graduate programs and increase careers and experiential learning opportunities, our partnership with the City will grow for the benefit of everyone in the Oshawa community and the region of Durham.”
