The William M. Tatham Centre (TC) was built in 2003 to support one of the world's largest co-operative education programs.

Thanks to our students and generous donors like William M. Tatham, and the Province of Ontario, this building now supports thousands of students and employers every year. The Tatham Centre is home to Co-operative Education, the Centre for Career Development (CCD) and many more Co-operative and Experiential Education (CEE) services for students.
