Nipissing University Student Union Centre

Read Full Project Profile

"The new two-storey building is to be a centrepiece for both the University and the Student Union, providing much-needed student space and services in a warm and welcoming environment. The building will include a full service restaurant, a 500-person night club that will also be used for conference services, a retail unit, the NUSU offices, and a wide variety of student gathering spaces, study lounges, and meeting spaces.

With the aim of creating a truly northern student centre, the design features wood and stone abundantly, drawing architectural inspiration from the surrounding forests and rock cuts. Extensive glass creates a light-filled building while providing expansive views to the beautiful coniferous forests that surround the building."
