Renovations of existing space and a new build will update the Portsmouth Avenue face of the College, while adding new space for students to collaborate and innovate with the community and businesses in various ways. A new conference area will create space for gatherings of up to 250 people. Health and Wellness features include a new double gym and a student pub.

In addition, the Hello Future project includes brand new learning and gathering space for our growing Indigenous student population. More than 200 Indigenous students attend SLC today. This new space will honour the traditions of Indigenous culture, while providing access to supports our students need to be successful.

New student Life and innovation spaces will include: 

• A licensed pub for students and the college community
• More student study and meeting space
• Enhanced space for academic programs/labs with physical education components
• More social gathering spaces
• Centralization of Student Services to simplify student support
• New larger gymnasium to facilitate more recreational and intramural opportunities
• Enhanced fitness facilities
• More space for special events that connect our students to the community and events that bolster school spirit and pride.
• Improvement of the out-of-classroom learning experience for generations of students
• Increased wellness opportunities for all students, staff, faculty, and our community
• Innovation space for students
• Gathering place for Indigenous students

In October 2016, our students voted in a referendum to consider their support, through ancillary fees, for the project. The result was overwhelming: more than 80 per cent of student who voted supported the project.
