Quad promises relief for York’s overflowing residences
Current construction near Pond Road will soon redeem itself in the form of a new residence building known as the Quad, set to open next fall.
Relative to other universities, York offers proportionately fewer on-campus student housing beds for its large student population, according to the York University Development Corporation.
Moreover, occupancy rates have reached 98 per cent for Keele undergraduate residences, 92 per cent for Glendon residences and 97 per cent for York apartments. Alarmingly, 100 per cent occupancy rates are reported at Founders Residence during the peak enrolment sessions of the York University English Language Institute, according to a Board of Governors report.
Campus Suites Inc. and Forum Equity Partners Inc. are in charge of developing and maintaining the Quad project.
