Have you ever wondered who creates the art in the stairwells? Currently, most of the art has been created by our very own talented student staff. The stairwell art initiative was developed to spread positive messages, and fill an otherwise blank space with something colourful and lively.
Want to have your art featured at the SLC? This is your chance to make your mark!
The SLC is calling all Ryerson artists (students, staff, faculty, and alumni) to submit your work. The design theme is DIVERSITY, and whether through text or art, we want to see what you have to say!
Winners will be invited to come in and recreate their submission with chalk in our stairwells.
*SUBMISSION DEADLINE EXTENDED*
To submit your work, and get all details, fill out this form before March 22nd, 2019 at 5:00 PM EST.
IMPORTANT: Please read the first two pages of the form before getting started on your design. These pages include all information regarding:

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.
Summer is coming to an end and we’re starting the transition into autumn. We’re also going back into “school mode.” To me, the beginning of a new school year means a fresh start – reunions with our peers, making new friends and heading back to class. I love it, but I know that it’s not everyone’s favourite time of year. Take it from me and enjoy a smooth back to school transition by following three of my personal tips
1. Create a schedule
In order to feel organized and prepared for school to start once again, setting up a schedule for yourself is one of the easiest things you can do. Not only will you be able to block in the times when you have class, but you’ll be able to set aside much needed study time. Book a Collaborative & Group Work Room (CGWR) or use the open study space at the SLC to get back into the groove of things.
“This contemporary, signature building creates a strong urban gateway to Ryerson University, marking the campus’ presence in the heart of downtown Toronto. Its south-facing plaza holds the corner, yet is also inviting: a geometric-tiled canopy provides a sheltering ceiling in “Ryerson blue,” while broad, sunny steps are well-used by students and passers-by. The invitation up and into the building is continued throughout the project. By programming the building as public, and not as a building exclusive to the Ryerson community, the school has made a powerful statement about its location on Yonge Street and how it can contribute to the public realm”
“Your Little Guide to…” is a series – for students, by students – to help you navigate our SLC and make the most of all that it has to offer.
If you ask me, starting university was nothing short of exhilarating, inspiring and some days, simply overwhelming. It’s important to remember that there are countless resources to support you, including this short guide to help you out! Discover how the Student Learning Centre can best serve you with my floor-by-floor breakdown of the building. Welcome to: SLC 101.
The first floor is the perfect spot for anyone looking to meet up with some friends. Grab a coffee from Starbucks before class or check out any of the events happening in the Amphitheatre throughout the school year.
It’s every student’s favourite time of year: back to school! With a new semester upon us, we’ve decided to ease into it and bring it back to basics. Below is everything you need to know about our SLC, from A-Z.
Feel a bit closer to the sailboats on Lake Ontario by sitting on the beanbags on the sixth floor! They’re made from recycled boat sails and even display the name boat they came from on the tag.
Sometimes you just need a giant whiteboard and a little help from your friends to get you through an assignment. That’s why we have 61 easily bookable Collaborative Group Work Rooms (CGWR). Make use of the dry-erase markers provided and use the erasers to tidy up!
