The Quad Student Residence at York University

Project highlights


Toronto, ON


C$95 million

Developed in partnership with Campus Suites and launched in 2017, this 342,000 sf student housing project on York University’s Keele Campus has 812 bedrooms in two buildings.

Each suite at The Quad comes fully furnished and includes wireless internet and gas. Both buildings feature at-grade retail and a 27,000-sf amenity/student life package with third-party restaurants and services, resort-style fitness facilities, business centres, bike community centre, bike lanes, and 24-7 access to on-site management. The Quad also features private landscaped courtyards, large communal areas on every floor, and pedestrian-friendly walkways to the academic core.


York University is leasing the site to Forum-Campus Suites (FCS) for an initial term of 70 years, with a 35-year extension at FCS’ discretion.

The Quad project was awarded Silver for Service Delivery in the Canadian Council for Public-Private Partnerships’ 2018 National Awards for Innovation and Excellence in P3s.
