UC’s Future Vision

A future that connects neighbourhoods, community and people with education, lifestyle and business. It’s a future that keeps us all forever young, through the pursuit of learning.

The Master Plan vision will see the Bruce campus develop a series of learning neighbourhoods with a student, working and living population of 45,000, consisting of 12,000 residents, 15,000 students and an enterprise and business population of 18,000+.

This will include $5+billion of property investment, 60,000+ sqm increase in core university facilities and 210,000 m2 GFA increase in partnership and commercial buildings and/or tenancies.
