Location

53,000 students and 7,000 staff and professors attend York University's two campuses: Keele and Glendon. The modern 185-hectare (457-acre) Keele campus is a self-contained community with extensive modern facilities including restaurants, a shopping mall, banks and a medical/dental clinic. Glendon, a smaller liberal arts faculty, is set on 33 hectares (85 acres) of park land, minutes from the boutiques, restaurants and nightlife of mid-town Toronto. At Glendon, students will reap the benefits of studying in an international, bilingual environment. A new campus will be built in Markham, Ontario, in partnership with Seneca College, and will offer high-quality degree programs and workplace-based learning opportunities, supporting student mobility and driving creativity and collaboration.
