Campus Life

As our student, you will be joining one of the most passionate and smallest Faculties at York University.

You will benefit from both the close-knit community and exclusive support services in your new home at the Faculty of Environmental & Urban Change and will have the opportunity to explore and interact with other students, staff and professors in the larger, eclectic academic, social and cultural life of York University.


EUC’s Co-op Program – New in Fall 2024

EUC degrees have a Co-op option. Students in EUC’s undergraduate programs can declare their intention to participate in the co-op program from the beginning. Like other Co-op programs, EUC’s program consists of at least two work terms in paid positions, for a total of 12-16 months of work terms total, interspersed with study terms. There are also two required courses – one at the beginning and one at the end of the program. Successful students receive a Co-op annotation on their transcript and graduate with meaningful work experiences and contacts.
