The Instructional Centre, or Instructional Building (IB), was completed in 2011. It features lecture theatres, computer labs and classrooms. IB is constructed with durable and local building materials made with renewable or recycled content. The surrounding windows and orientation of the building allows for maximization of natural light to enter its interior spaces.
Sited at the northern edge of the campus ring road, the Instructional Centre sits in close proximity to the popular Hazel McCallion Academic Learning Centre which Perkins + Will Canada also designed. Together, these buildings frame a new entry plaza and create a dynamic new hub of student life.
