Newest Continuing | Transfer | Mature Student Building

The newest residence complex in Aperture Park is south of Piikani House and Tsuut'ina House, and across from Residence Village and Paterson Centre.  The facility will feature 259 beds in studio and four-bedroom configurations. All spaces have kitchens and double beds. Several studio rooms are being designed for long term guests and visiting lecturers, there are several accessible suites, and a massive amount of social and study space on site.

A room function list is included, below.

"We identified second and third-year returning students as a priority for this building," says Terri Thomas, Associate Executive Director of Ancillary Services. "We also designed a large number of features into the building that we hope will encourage student interaction and connections. Our residences have always had a long wait list, and this should also help with that challenge."

Thomas adds that with nine study lounges for support of academic pursuits, a games room, exercise centre and a multi-purpose room for club meetings and other activities, the space should see plenty of use. The L-shaped building is centred around a quad-style green space, near a large park and lake. It is also directly across a lane from outdoor amenities that include beach volleyball, basketball courts and other recreational activities. The new facility, in conjunction with the current renovation projects underway, will increase the number of available rooms on campus by more than 60 per cent, from 690 to 947 single beds.
