MacKinnon Building is getting a makeover!

As a BA student, you'll have most of your classes in the MacKinnon Building. Located in the heart of campus, it's home to the performing arts and the International Institute for Critical Studies in Improvisation. In fall 2019 we broke ground on renovations to the building.

The improvements are expected to include a new main entrance in the north wing, new student spaces, practice spaces and an updated performance space!
