Humber has been fortunate to see consistent student enrolment growth and a corresponding institutional commitment to student success. As a result, we are investing in new facilities and spaces for our learners, along with accompanying supports for employees.
In January 2017, construction will begin on two major North Campus projects: the creation of the new Centre for Technology and Innovation (CTI), and a new 1000-space parking garage.
Construction on the CTI will affect the lower section of parking lot 3, which will be closed. CTI construction is expected to be substantially finished by April 30, 2018.
The new parking garage will be located in the area that currently comprises lot 2 and the former W child care centre. Humber part-time staff and faculty who previously parked in Lot 2 and have purchased a valid parking permit for the winter semester have been moved to Lot 4, which is now gated card-access only. Substantial completion of this facility is expected by the end of February 2018, and will provide approximately 200 additional spots to the campus's current parking capacity.
Please note that as a result of construction, there may be traffic congestion on Arboretum road, especially at entrance A (to/from Humber College Blvd) and in the areas by parking lots 3 and 4. Please allow for additional time when travelling to campus.
Reduced daily-rate and permit overflow parking is available at both the Queens Plate and Woodbine Mall parking lots, with a free shuttle to the North Campus running every 15 minutes. Reduced permit parking rates are also available at Woodbine Mall.
As we head into the 50th anniversary of Ontario colleges, Humber continues to operate in a period of institutional growth and innovation. While we recognize that these infrastructure projects can cause short-term disruption to campus life, we're looking forward to working together to build on our many achievements and continue to support student success.
Thank you for your ongoing support.
