Peter George Centre for Living and Learning
“The Peter George Centre for Living and Learning not only benefits current and future McMaster students, it also aligns with the university’s mission statement by contributing to the greater good of the City of Hamilton.”Globe and Mail – David McPherson
The Peter George Centre for Living and Learning is the largest building to be constructed to date at McMaster University. It is also the first residence to be built on campus in 15 years, and the first to combine residential and academic functions.
The new 12-storey, 335,000 square foot building contains a large active learning classroom as well as a variety of smaller teaching spaces. Three stacked auditoria have been acoustically isolated from the main building in a drum and are accessed by interior bridges that have been designed to maintain this isolation.
Above the academic spaces, the building contains a 518-bed student residence, student wellness centre, children’s daycare centre, food services and a cafe.
The atrium space serves as a central hub for the academic and residential functions while also providing a space for informal study and congregation.
