 DC Key Stakeholder Issues
 Enrollment Growth
  •   Durham College projected to grow at 3% per year – 15% over 5 years
  •   Greatest impediment to growth is lack of space

 Academic Programs
  •   Potential Hospitality and Tourism program
  •   Increased training to address the skilled trades shortages
  •   Durham Regional Police satellite station
  •   New energy programs at Whitby campus (energy incubator)
  •   Potential new Fine Arts/Media and Health Sciences programs

 Major Facility Needs
  •   Relocate shared service areas from A, B, C and D wings into a new 'one-stop
      shopping' student services building
  •   Decommission portables and reclaim shared service areas in A, B, C and D
      wings with teaching and learning spaces
  •   Cluster programs by school in the Willey building to reinforce school identity
  •   Introduce new Hospitality and Tourism facility
  •   Create a joint Health Sciences building in A4 with UOIT
  •   Potential Media, Arts and Design Centre

 DC Key Stakeholder Issues
 Quality of Space and Student Life Environment
  •   Enhance the quality of instructional space
  •   Improve the quality and quantity of study spaces, including
      quiet study areas
  •   Improve quality and quantity of office and conference
      spaces for full and part time faculty
  •   Need for informal meeting spaces for faculty, staff and
      students to create a sense of community

CAMPUS MASTER PLAN                                                  7
 Instructional Space Analysis
 Purpose
  •   Project current and future space needs for each institution

 Methodology
  • Interviews with UOIT and DC stakeholders
  • Council of Educational Facility Planners International space
    planning guidelines
  • Initial analysis of instructional space with subsequent
    examination of all space types

  Assumptions
  • Weekly student contact hours (WSCH) generated from the
    Fall 2008 Course Schedules for UOIT and DC
  • Fall 2008 enrollment figures and instructional space inventory
    supplied by UOIT and DC
  • In the absence of registration data for Trent students, course
    enrollments were assumed to be 65 percent of room capacity
  • Full space inventory for DC currently being developed

 Preliminary Space Needs Summary
 Durham College Summary
  • The majority of classroom contact hours are
    generated in small to mid-sized rooms
  • Very high level of classroom utilization confirms
    little scheduling flexibility in existing classroom
    supply
  • Low levels of occupancy in large classrooms
    indicate additional capacity may be available if
    section sizes can be increased
  • Laboratory utilization and occupancy are well above
    target and suggest possible overuse of room

  • High levels of classroom utilization in both the
    daytime and evening
  • Mismatch between classroom and section sizes
    accounts for low levels of occupancy
  • Low levels of occupancy suggest opportunities to
    better align classes with room sizes
  • Potential to accommodate enrollment growth in labs
    given low levels of utilization and occupancy

        Creating an identifiable heart
        Developing a strong sense of orientation for each institution
  •   Improve the physical organization and legibility of the campus
  •   Locate student life and shared spaces at the campus core to promote a vibrant social
      learning environment
  •   Build a compact academic core to support a collegiate setting and walkable environment
  •   Design buildings and outdoor spaces sustainably and in response to the natural and
      cultural landscape
  •   Rationalize circulation with smooth transitions from car to parking to pedestrian
  •   Enhance the surrounding urban setting through development

 •   Narrow hallway inadequate for
     main interior circulation route
 •   Bus loop traffic impinges on
     open spaces in front of the

 •   Informal crossings to the
     Dalhousie neighborhood
 •   Ineffectual left turn prohibition at
     Founders Gate exit
 •   Inadequate pedestrian and

 Campus Alternatives for Discussion
 Program Direction
 UOIT: Main Campus, Downtown
  •   Focus UOIT science and technology programs on the core of the campus
  •   UOIT Business, CJPS and Communications programs move downtown
 DC: Oshawa Campus, Whitby, Downtown
  •   DC continues growth of existing programs at Oshawa campus
  •   Focus on DC Media, Arts and Design centre
  •   Continue to focus DC skilled trade programs at Whitby
  •   Possible expansion of DC programs to include hospitality and tourism programs


 Preliminary Physical Form and Density Alternatives
 Concentrated Core:
  •   To extent possible, concentrate academic uses in core campus to enhance student and faculty interaction
  •   Long-term densification will require significant percentage of structured or remote parking
  •   May require relocation of baseball field north of Conlin
 Distributed Functions North and South of Conlin:
  •   UOIT graduate, professional, institutes and research north of Conlin
  •   Selected shared student life, housing, recreation and parking functions north of Conlin
  •   Consider location for community-oriented programs, e.g. Hospitality, event space
