About the Building

The Ted Rogers School of Management is housed in a 210,000 square-foot building with floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook a central urban courtyard. Providing the perfect space for quiet study or networking between classes, the garden courtyard also casts natural light to TRSM's three floors. All exterior classrooms and faculty offices overlook Yonge-Dundas Square and other landmarks of Toronto’s dynamic downtown core.

The design of the Ted Rogers School of Management building mirrors the diverse management programs offered, and the various teaching styles and technology provide a rigorous, relevant and innovative learning environment.

The Department of Environmental Health & Safety (EHS) and Security integrates, coordinates and guides the efforts of the community in ensuring everyone feels safe and acts in a way that promotes the university’s culture, mission and objectives positively.

Key areas to help with personal safety include the Walk Safe Program, which provides the Ryerson University community a protected escort – security officer or supervisor – 24 hours a day to any location on the Ryerson campus, to Dundas subway or to parking lots located off-campus.

In case of emergency, there is an eye wash station in the prep kitchen

The Ted Rogers School of Management at Ryerson University is committed to ensuring that the building is barrier free and the physical environment and public spaces are accessible to all.
