May 9, 2001 was an historic day for Durham Region and Northumberland County. The Government of Ontario announced plans for the first brand new university in the province in 40 years, earmarking $60 million in startup funds through Ontario SuperBuild Corporation. An operations centre was immediately established next to the Durham College President's office where 11 teams, working seven days a week, produced a to-do list of 856 tasks and hundreds of sub-tasks. Team members toured top institutions across North America to study best practices.
The university officially came into being on June 27, 2002, with the legislature's passage of Bill 109, Schedule O, the University of Ontario Institute of Technology Act, 2002. Administrators had 14 months to prepare for opening day in September 2003. UOIT would become Ontario’s first university to use the latest technology to deliver its curriculum, giving students a competitive edge in tomorrow's workplace.
UOIT was ready to meet challenge. The university welcomed its first class of 947 students on September 4, 2003, ushering in a new era of post-secondary in Durham Region and in Ontario.

In 2013-2014, more than four out of five graduating students participated in work-integrated learning through opportunities such as co-ops, internships and practicums.
The university houses more than 70 specialized research laboratories and facilities. These facilities show our commitment to attracting leading scholars and creating excellent learning experiences.

This expansion will establish the new classrooms, laboratories and infrastructure required to provide students, professors and researchers with the space they need to build Canada's competitiveness while creating an exciting and rewarding educational experience.
