Building Boom

Since 2005, a total of 37 major building projects have been completed or are now underway

U of T is in the midst of a massive capital renewal. Since 2005, a total of 37 major building projects worth more than $1.2 billion have been completed or are now underway across the three campuses. (This figure includes all new construction and renovation projects valued at $2 million or more.)

These state-of-the art facilities for faculty, staff, students and visitors (a selection of which are pictured below) have won awards for sustainability and architectural excellence. All complement U of T’s historic architecture and add considerably to the university’s presence in the Toronto region. Philanthropy has played a crucial role in making these projects possible. U of T’s visionary donors are supporting successive generations of Canada’s best and brightest.
