Announced in April 2018, Ryerson University is set to open a new Brampton campus in partnership with the Province of Ontario and Sheridan College. The site of this new centre for education and collaboration will be centrally located next to an existing GO Station in downtown Brampton and marks the first time that Ryerson has expanded its academic programming outside of downtown Toronto.
With a planned academic programming start date of September 2022, the new campus will connect students with external organizations in the region and act as an innovation hub offering data-driven science and business programs as well as innovative experiential learning opportunities. It will also serve as a home for a new national centre for cybersecurity.
Plans call for the campus to enroll at least 2,000 students over its first five years.
