The Daphne Cockwell Health Sciences Complex is a catalyst for innovation and excellence, transforming education and the city

  • An eight-storey podium houses enhanced academic and administrative spaces while a student-residence tower to the north provides 332 students with much-needed access to housing in 100 residential units.

  • The Daphne Cockwell School of Nursing, the Midwifery Education Program, the School of Nutrition and the School of Occupational and Public Health come together for the first time as a coherent cluster with outstanding potential for cross-disciplinary collaboration.

  • State-of-the-art facilities — such as clinical experience suites, teaching labs, modular labs, high-fidelity simulation suites, clinical skills practice areas, and debriefing rooms — create exceptional opportunities for learning, teaching and research, while formal and informal study space, course union office areas and lounges promote an enriching student experience.

  • The complex will be LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold compliant. Bicycle parking, a green roof, and greywater collection promote health and sustainability and create unrivaled opportunities for hands-on learning.

  • Integrating the urban experience into the life of the campus — and vice versa — the complex fosters greater animation and activity on the street, helping bring new vitality to the surrounding community.

  • Innovation lies at the heart of the development. A Future Lab with 3D printers, robotic arms, a laser cutter and CNC lathes for prototyping allows students from architecture, interior design and other areas to explore and create — using the best equipment.

  • The complex is designed by the internationally acclaimed architectural firm Perkins + Will. Interior Design magazine ranked Perkins + Will number one on its list of healthcare design firms, extending a more than decade-long run of being named among the Top Five.
