Project updates and progress

May 2018 update

The scheduled completion date for the SLC/PAC expansion has shifted from late Fall 2018 to late Spring 2019. The schedule changes is due to a variety of factors including:

  • unforeseen building conditions
  • soil conditions
  • bad weather
  • changes or variations in the scope of work
  • rescheduling work to accommodate specific events.

These factors are common in projects of this scale and the project continues to move forward. If you have questions about this project or the changes to the timeline, please see the Frequently Asked Questions. 

SLC Updates:

The dining room and exterior doors near Campus Bubble will remain closed throughout the Spring term. Brubakers, Subway, Campus Bubble, Wasabi, and the dining hall seating is still closed but expected to open by the end of Spring 2018 term. 

Wasabi sushi is currently available in the International News. The Bomber and Tim Hortons in the SLC are open and offer a variety of food options.

The central stairs and ramp near the dining hall from the main floor to the second floor will also remain closed. There are signs directing you to alternate staircases and the elevators.

A protective walkway has been installed outside the Mathematics and Computer (MC) building to prepare for construction of the bridge link between the west side of the MC's third floor and the SLC. You can use this walkway to get between BMH Green/William Tutte Way and the SLC/QNC without going through the inside or around MC.

PAC updates:

All programming continues in the PAC including full operation of the pool, Warrior Zone, studios, squash courts and gym (small and main). The Customer Care Desk remains open and small change rooms are available to use.
