Pictured above is a new billboard at the King campus of Seneca College, on Dufferin Street. Right behind this sign, earth-movers are already preparing the site for a new 200,000 sq. ft. building, to be called Magna Hall, that will feature 25 new classrooms, computer labs, health-care specialty labs, a library, learning commons and student study space. There will also be a new student area with multi-purpose athletic and recreation space, gymnasium, fitness centre, plus informal study areas and event spaces. Total cost is predicted to be $104 million, of which $59 million will be provided by the provincial government, $3 million from Magna International, and $20 million from a Seneca College fund-raising campaign, which is already underway. Completion is expected in 2018 and will accommodate an additional 1,500 students, bringing the total student enrollment to 5,000.
