Daphne Cockwell Health Sciences Complex

Creating connections for a healthy city

The Daphne Cockwell Health Sciences Complex will foster a vibrant academic environment and new communities of living and learning at Ryerson.

This multifunctional hub will house four schools from Ryerson’s Faculty of Community Services, together with student accommodation and administrative offices. The School of Nutrition, the School of Occupational and Public Health, the Midwifery Education program and the Daphne Cockwell School of Nursing will form — for the first time — a purposeful cluster of schools connected to the health sciences.

Designed by the internationally acclaimed architectural firm Perkins + Will, the complex features outstanding spaces that encourage not only cross-disciplinary connections among students, faculty and staff — but also interaction between the activities of the building and its surrounding community. These experiences celebrate a holistic approach to health and wellness.
