Earth Hour at the SLC

Ryerson University and the SLC will be joining millions around the globe to shine a light on climate change action by participating in Earth Hour. We will celebrate our collective commitment to our planet by switching off the lights from 8:30 p.m. – 9:30 p.m. on Saturday March 24, 2018.

In keeping with the spirit of Earth Hour, we will be turning off all non-essential lighting in and around the SLC for one hour. This will include:

  • Lights on Floors 3 and 4
  • Lights installed on the windows on Floors 1 and 2
  • Lights on Floors 5 to 8, depending on occupancy
  • Exterior lights

All floors and areas will be monitored accordingly. Lights will not be turned off if there are any perceived risks.

We invite you to switch off your lights and switch on your social power with us this Saturday. This is our time to #ChangeClimateChange!

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact or stop by LIB272B.

Humans of the SLC – Pt. 3

Humans of the SLC aims to showcase users’ experiences within the building and reflect on what exactly makes a place feel like home. This is a project created by students for students. This is your story and your SLC

Monica & Nadia Buffa, Business Management Students:

“We live about an hour commute from here. On days that I have just one class, I spend the rest of the day studying here while I wait for her. I actually find that I study more easily here than I do at home. It’s just good to have a fun and motivating environment around you, whether you’re studying or you’re with friends.” -Monica Continue reading “Humans of the SLC – Pt. 3”

Maintenance Work – Gould Street Entrance

In response to ongoing leaks in the School of Performance and other lower-level spaces in the Student Learning Centre, a caulking replacement project to address the issue will begin Tuesday, October 10th. Due of the urgent and disruptive nature of the project, it will be conducted in phases and expected to be completed by November 27, 2017.

The phased approach minimizes the impact but extends the overall duration of the project. With your needs in mind, the SLC will remain open as usual throughout the project, minimizing the restrictions to accessibility by scheduling the most disruptive work on weekends.

This is how you will be impacted:

Pep, Pep, Pep Rally!

As I looked out over the sea of yellow residence t-shirts and anticipating faces, I found myself thinking back to my residence move in day – three years ago. I was just like all of the first years in front of me, at my very first Ryerson pep rally with my new floor family,  unsure of what the next few years had in store for me. Now, in my final year, I was standing in the middle of the crowd just as nervous, but this time, it was different. I was there to welcome the new students.
