Subject:       Construction begins on SLC/PAC Expansion

We are excited to let you know that the SLC/PAC Expansion construction phase is ready to begin.

Construction fencing/hoarding will be going up around the SLC courtyard and into BMH Green this week. Please see the construction diagram attached.

The SLC/PAC Expansion will help address student space needs on campus by adding an additional 63,000 square feet of space. The expansion will connect to the current SLC on all three floors and connect with the Red North corner of the PAC. A collaborative venture between the University of Waterloo, the Federation of Students and the Graduate Student Association; the project was approved by undergraduate and graduate students in a referendum vote in February 2016. The project committee, as well as the architects and other key stakeholders, have been planning since then and are prepared for construction to begin this term with a projected opening in Fall 2018.

Other updates:

  • Visit the SLC/PAC Expansion website for up-to-date information about the project.
  • New paved pathways and temporary entrances to the SLC and PAC will be marked with signs.
  • The SLC, Great Hall, and all services, offices and retail outlets are open for business. For Food Services hours check portal.
  • Visit the Athletics website for information about what is open in the PAC.
  • View the architect’s design renderings.

Stay tuned for details about a groundbreaking ceremony and opportunities to provide input throughout the project. Thank you for supporting this important initiative.

Chris Read, Associate Provost, Students
