Construction set to begin on Keele Campus this spring

York University is preparing for some transformative construction projects on the Keele Campus. The construction projects are set to begin this spring, starting with the Victor Phillip Dahdaleh Building. Repairs to the exterior precast panels on this building will begin in late May. The University will be replacing the exterior panels while at the same time beautifying the building. Community members will experience some noise discomfort while this work is being done.

The following is a list of projects expected to come on stream later this year:

  • School of Continuing Studies new building construction;
  • James Gillies Street realignment; and
  • The Quad – Phase 2 construction.

These projects will have varying levels of impact on community members. Those in the southeast quadrant of the campus bounded by Sentinel Road and Atkinson Road, The Pond Road, James Gillies Street and Fine Arts Road will be most affected. To learn more, refer to the campus map for details.

The University is taking significant strides towards improving the condition of facilities through a combination of new projects and the renewal of existing buildings. The goals of these projects are to continue to foster academic innovation, enrich student experience, strengthen enrolment, support research excellence and sustain campus renewal.
