More Information

This 10,000 sq. ft. structure is located on the prominent and visible corner of University Crescent and Innovation Drive at the entrance point to the central Fort Garry campus. The form of the structure, breaking from the common rectangular forms of other campus buildings, identifies the centre as a way-finding landmark. A fully glazed and projecting foyer provides a clear and welcoming entrance point and visibility into the Visitor Reception and Information Services area. The remaining more introverted parts of the building, clad in Tyndall stone, house the offices for Campus Parking and Security Services.
