Humber Backfill Project (2015-2020)

The completion of the North Campus Learning Resource Commons and two storey addition to Building F in 2015 and Lakeshore Student Services and Welcome Centre resulted in the vacating of a significant amount of existing space at both campuses. The Humber Backfill Project is a multi-year initiative that will reallocate/renovate over 16,700 SM (180,000 SF) of space across multiple projects enabling Humber to meet the growing need of the North Campus for new labs, classrooms and office space for students, staff and faculty.

Phase 1, completed at the end of 2016, consisted of such North Campus initiatives as:

  • New Wine/Mixology & Bake Labs for HRT and a new collaborative student study/lounge on the ground floor of Building D
  • New HRT Fitness Labs and an expanded food services venue in Building C
  • Numerous classroom and lab construction/renovations in Buildings E, J and N
  • Consolidation of the Public Safety offices on the ground floor of Building NX

  • Consolidation of the School of Hospitality, Recreation and Tourism (HRT) offices on the ground floor of Building B
  • Renovation and expansion of the Day Care Centre, Buildings FX & JF and the Pharmacy Lab, Building E

Subsequent phases, 2017 to 2010 will consist of such North Campus initiatives as:
