Markham Centre Welcomes York U
York University Markham Centre, is anticipated to serve more than 4,000 students in its initial phase, and will be located just steps from the heart of Downtown Markham. The campus will be integrated into the Markham Pan Am Centre, providing a state-of-the-art multi-sports facility for students and the surrounding community.
York Region’s well-established knowledge economy means students will have close proximity to research centres and major employers, offering unique workplace-based learning opportunities and professionally relevant academic programs.
Students at the new campus will be in good company. There are 50,000 York University alumni currently residing in York Region, and 11% of York Region residents aged 18-24 already attend York University.
Markham, one of Ontario’s fastest-growing major urban areas, is the ideal setting for an institution of higher learning to serve all of York Region. And Markham Centre, with Downtown Markham’s vibrant, entertaining and culturally infused mix of residential, retail and commercial space at its core, will greatly enhance the student experience.
The campus will have significant economic impact on York Region, with the construction process generating $500 million in economic benefits alone. York U Markham Centre will also provide over 400 on-campus jobs and roughly $37 million in annual revenue once fully operational, meaning hugely increased earning potential for local Downtown Markham businesses.
We are thrilled to welcome York U to the neighbourhood. Downtown Markham, the Place to Live, the Place to Work, the Place to Play and now, the Place to Learn.
