Welcome to the Atkinson Centre for Mature and Part-time Students (ACMAPS)

The Atkinson Centre was established to provide a pan-university physical and philosophical home for mature and part-time students. The Centre first opened its doors in Central Square in August 2007 and celebrated its launch on November 5, 2007.

ACMAPS has developed a wide range of student supports, including annual Orientation events, the Mature Student First-Year Experience Program, peer-to-peer mentoring, and various student success workshops. Our activities are informed by research and current data on mature and part-time students at York.

We are committed to supporting the success of mature students from admission through graduation and are excited to be part of York University’s ongoing commitment to accessibility.

We look forward to welcoming many part-time and mature students, faculty and staff to the Atkinson Centre. Please feel free to drop by the office to say hello, and keep an eye on these pages for upcoming events and activities.
