New collaborative study spaces on campus now open

Students at UTSC now have much needed newly designed collaborative study spaces. The spaces opened in late October and are already buzzing with students working away on assignments or just studying for upcoming tests.

The study spaces are located on the 4th floor of the Bladen Wing and offer a bank of windows that provide plenty of natural light.  The new study space was designed with input from the Study Space Working Group, Tracy Gould of Design & Construction Management, and the Scarborough College Student Union. The 160 spaces are equipped with electrical outlets to facilitate use of laptops and other electronics.

“We’ve been trying to work for more and better study spaces for students, and our hope is that these spaces will be heavily utilized,” says Desmond Pouyat, Dean of Student Affairs. 

UTSC is committed to providing accessible study space in all learning styles. This new study space was much needed, as many spaces at UTSC are single carousels. Students can now work collaboratively and comfortably in groups of two, four or eight.

The Study Space Working Group meets two times a term and will continue to build other spaces as unique as this one.
