Through an incredible partnership with the Ontario government, Seneca Student Federation and the Student Athletic Association, we are embarking on a transformational $100+ million project to expand infrastructure at the Campus, while also strengthening financial aid opportunities and developing new academic pathways.
Preliminary architectural renderings
Our partners understand the necessity of King’s growth and have made important investments in this project. Now, to bring the vision for King’s future to reality, we need members of the broader Seneca community to lend their expertise and support.
With your help, King Campus, rich in natural beauty and heritage, will be expanded and revitalized, producing graduates who will build on the world-class education they receive to bring care and compassion to those in need in our community, across our country and around the world.
The Campaign’s Three Key Pillars
& Safe Communities
Over the next 40 years, York Region’s population is projected to increase to 1.8 million – 60 per cent of which will be newcomers to Canada and 23 per cent over the age of 65.
For years, students have followed their passions to King Campus, building fulfilling careers in a learning environment that was constructed for 1,700 but now houses more than 3,000.
Preserving Our Cultural
& Natural Heritage
As custodians of this culturally and naturally significant property, Seneca has a duty to protect assests, such as the old growth forests, meadows, and walking paths of historic Eaton Hall.
DAVID AGNEW President, Seneca
As a valued member of York Region and the GTA, we’re delighted to share our vision for the future of King Campus with you. Please join us on our journey to make this vision a reality through the Campaign for King.
Our goal is to expand and modernize King Campus to meet a growing societal demand for our students and provide the infrastructure, programs and financial support they need to be successful.
With your support, we will continue to build on the Campus’ unique programs, history and natural landscape to create a truly outstanding learning environment – one that is well-equipped to prepare graduates to meet the challenges and optimize the opportunities offered by one of Canada’s most vibrant regions.
