Innovation and Wellness Centre
On October 11th, Queen’s University announced a $30 million investment from the Government of Canada, $20 million of which is to revitalize 67 Union Street, home of the previous Physical Education Centre. The building is being dramatically transformed to accommodate three of the Principal’s top priorities, including establishing a new space for the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science, a home for our campus-wide innovation initiative, and a contemporary and integrated space for our Innovation and Wellness Centre.
Situated in the new Innovation and Wellness Centre, the Engineering Innovation Commons will be a dedicated space for bringing our engineering community together. This leading-edge facility will be the heart of engineering teaching, research, and collaboration.
The generous donors who contributed to the “Inspiring Spaces” building fund understand the value of an inclusive, interdisciplinary environment—and their generosity is providing the necessary physical space to build community and stimulate new ideas. New undergraduate teaching and design studios, interdisciplinary research clusters, and flexible innovation space will bring together professors, undergraduate, and graduate students from a range of disciplines to collaborate in a dynamic and academic social environment.
