The NEW #UofGBusiness Building

Posted on Monday, May 30th, 2016

In addition to the new Athletic Centre coming your way in fall 2016, another campus project was to create a "home" for the College of Business and Economics. We've taken MacDonald Hall and completely revamped it! What used to be an all-female residence is now the new and official business building.

Checkout these FACTS:
4 historic images of Macdonald Hall, with the text "Built in 1903" over top.Macdonald Hall was originally built in 1903 as a women's residency. The photos in this collage showcase the original exterior, a typical dorm room, the gymnasium and the famous "well", where female students would gather around to "check out" incoming visitors (often males picking up their dates!).
Image of the new staircase in the building with the words "Fair Trade Coffee" over top.There will be a fair-trade coffee shop within the building!
Image of some student work spaces in the new building with the words "Work. Study. Collaborate" over top.Almost every square inch of the building will be a location to work, study, and collaborate with other students. There will also be 13 student association and club rooms.
The new lecture hall with the words "Hello Modern Learning" over top.The old women's gymnasium (mentioned above) will now be a new, modernized classroom.

Image of a group work space with the words "Teamwork to make the dream work" over top.Along with this, there will be dozens of small "break out" rooms for study sessions and presentations, all with adjustable desks and chairs so students and faculty are able to modify their learning space to suit their needs.

Macdonald Hall will also be the home to the Business Career Development Centre and the Centre for Business and Student Enterprise (CBaSE).

So, by accepting your #uofgbusiness offer, you can be sure that you'll be spending LOTS of time in this beautiful space. Welcome home!
