Creating dedicated areas for individuals and groups to accommodate different study styles and needs.

We envision the West Hall, originally a museum and the first location of what ultimately became the Royal Ontario Museum, as a Reading Room. The room’s stunning heritage features – a dazzling stained-glass rose window, portraits of influential UC professors, and more than 250 unique roundels – will provide an aspirational backdrop.

Dedicated areas for individual and group study will accommodate different study styles, allowing students to work independently or learn from each other in groups according to their preference. Specially designed work stations complete with personal lighting and power sources will enable students to literally plug in and recharge between classes.
