Ryerson University Master Plan Update

Ryerson University seeks an update to their Toronto Campus Master Plan. Objectives for the update include ensuring that planning for future campus development supports the University’s mission and delivery of the Academic Plan. The updated plan will also ensure that campus space planning, design and delivery is rooted in enhancing the student experience, and that it is inclusive and community focused. Assumptions around campus growth projects for the next ten years will be examined for strategic improvements and additional space requirement demands.

Crozier has been retained as the civil and transportation engineering consultants to review the existing state of assets, servicing and transportation infrastructure and their expansion potential. Specifically, we will participate in working sessions with the University Board, alumni, student groups and other subconsultants to identify the Master Plan goals and prepare a detailed final report on the servicing and transportation engineering recommendations on existing and proposed infrastructure.

Unlike most campuses, the boundary between the Ryerson site and the city is seamless. There is an opportunity to redefine what it means to be an “Urban University”. Throughout the review process we will be tasked with providing recommendations on unique urban/infill challenges while maintaining usual university operations. The challenge will be finding solutions that allow the campus to grow in order to accommodate increased student enrollment/housing needs within a constrained urban environment.
