Library revitalization

The Library is making big changes to our two main locations – Dana Porter and Davis Centre libraries. Guided by our vision for library space and student feedback, our revitalization team has been working with an advisory committee and architects at WalterFedy on a plan to improve existing spaces and create new spaces that meet the changing needs of our users.

Library Revitalization

This $3.3 million project includes $500,000 from our generous donors - an amount that has been matched by the university.  For updates and detailed information, visit the Library revitalization blog.

Dana Porter Library

We are relocating collections and staff spaces on the 3rd and 5th floors to create more space for our users, this includes:

  • More bookable study rooms
  • Dynamic learning environments
  • Quiet space for prayer and reflection
  • A new student lounge area for the outreach and wellness activities we already offer
  • The 5th floor will become a staff-only floor to create more student space overall

Davis Centre Library

We are updating and improving the main floor of Davis Centre Library, including:

  • New and improved washrooms, including the addition of a fully-accessible and gender neutral washroom
  • A new student lounge area for the outreach and wellness activities we already offer
  • New carpet to create a more inviting entrance
  • Consolidated computing services close to the new IST Help Desk location
  • Better wayfinding, including an easier-to-find entrance to librarian offices
