Earlier this month, Governing Council for the University of Toronto Mississauga approved the name Deerfield Hall for Phase 1 of the North Building project currently underway with Eastern Construction. The name was selected from a list of nearly 200 entries submitted by students and staff as part of a contest to name the modern four-storey academic space. The name Deerfield Hall was selected to reflect UTM’s ‘natural setting and its reputation for growing sustainably.’ Interior finishes are underway with the project scheduled for completion August 2014.
Deerfield Hall will be home to the departments of Mathematical and Computational Sciences, Psychology, English, and Drama. Once complete, the facility will offer students expanded food services, study spaces, classrooms, research labs, and rehearsal facilities for the Drama program.
