Tyndale to Consolidate Onto One Campus
TORONTO – For the continued growth and success of its student body, Tyndale University College & Seminary will consolidate its main operations onto the new Bayview Avenue campus, following moves by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Toronto and the Toronto Catholic District School Board to their new locations currently anticipated in 2013. In its 117-year history, Tyndale has consistently based property decisions on its mission to enrich the mind, heart and character of its students. It moved from Queens Avenue in London, and Bloor and Spadina in Toronto, to the present campus on Ballyconnor Court in 1976. The new Bayview campus will provide room to expand Tyndale’s mission to provide quality university and seminary education.
Tyndale’s use of the new campus at 3377 Bayview Avenue began two years ago with the Bachelor of Education program and other academic and administrative departments. The Bayview campus has ample room for future growth with more than 35 classrooms, over 200 dorm rooms, multiple sports amenities and 56 acres of land. Tyndale will continue to increase its presence on the new campus as space becomes available. The Tyndale Board of Governors will explore all options for the best use of all of Tyndale’s assets to ensure responsible stewardship of resources and to maximize opportunities for expansion and impact of programs.
Tyndale is an evangelical trans-denominational university college and seminary that prepares students for professional vocations, post graduate studies and ministry. Tyndale offers programs in a wide range of disciplines at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Undergraduate students may earn BEd, BA, and BRE degrees and certificates. Graduate-level education offers a Doctor of Ministry degree; Masters degrees in Divinity, Theological Studies and Theology; and graduate diplomas. Currently, there are over 1,300 students and 9,000 alumni. Founded in 1894, Tyndale is strategically located in Toronto.
