Sheridan College recently held the grand opening of its Hazel McCallion Campus expansion, a facility that will provide space for an additional 3,200 students in Ontario to pursue a post-secondary education.
The new 220,000 square-foot building, located in Mississauga, features 29 state-of-the-art classrooms, 28 studios, labs and production spaces where students will experience hands-on learning. It was designed to be sustainable, energy efficient, and was built to LEED Silver standards.
“Investing in high-quality post-secondary education is about more than expanding access and affordability. It is also about investing in innovative learning spaces that provide students with the opportunity to gain hands-on learning experience in state-of-the-art facilities,” said Deb Matthews, Minister of Advanced Education and Skills Development, in a press release. “The Ontario Government is proud to support the energy efficient expansion of Sheridan’s Hazel McCallion Campus. I know it will serve students well for decades.”
Ontario contributed $67.7 million towards the construction of the facility. This investment completes the second phase of the Sheridan College Hazel McCallion Campus, which increases the number of full-time students at the campus to a total of 5,600.
