Ryerson University


Recommended Posts

Ryerson University's history is rooted in innovative, career-driven education to address contemporary societal needs. Named after Ontario's first Superintendent of Education and leading public school advocate, Egerton Ryerson, it began as a postsecondary institute designed to combine technical education with an academic theory for the first time.

Welcome to Ryerson, where every year brings exciting progress. The university's reputation continues to grow, built on its people's talent, the ingenuity of its unique spaces, and the strength of its dreams.

In all academic disciplines, our undergraduate and graduate students are challenging the status quo with a mental edge and creative vision. They are inspired by the Ryerson mission of making an impact on our economy, society, and culture.

Ryerson is now identified as the leader in Canada for innovation and entrepreneurial education and recognized among leaders in the world. Investing traditional programs and research with the perspective, pace, and emerging technologies of the 21st century, our direction is focused and bold.

It takes courage to be a pioneer, and hard work to be a champion. You are part of a high university intent on advancing our city, nation, and global community in a sit-up-and-take-notice kind of way.

The extraordinary Student Learning Centre, opened last year as the new Ryerson gateway on Yonge Street, joining iconic developments like the Mattamy Athletic Centre at the Gardens and the Ryerson Image Centre, plus new projects taking our campus forward.

Ryerson University's remarkable growth has been guided by our flexible, visionary Master Plan, established in 2008. The plan outlines a framework for undertaking the revitalization of our campus and acting as a catalyst for change and renewal within our unique downtown community.

The Master Plan Principles document is a gateway to the principles that continue to guide campus development today. It is designed to be an accessible and graphically updated tool to help the community understand our approach to city building and managing change. Even as downtown Toronto continues its unprecedented growth, the Master Plan Principles remain current and continue to guide Ryerson through its three main goals:

  • Urban intensification
  • People First - pedestrianization of the urban environment
  • A commitment to design excellence
