Hunter Student Commons

A home for students in the heart of campus

Enhancing the student experience

This building provides a new home for students across campus to gather, bring lunch and socialize, collaborate on group projects or study between classes. It features leading edge classrooms designed to offer students unique learning opportunities they couldn't access elsewhere. Hunter Student Commons, and the people inside of it, supports UCalgary's renewed focus on expanding access to post-secondary education and enhancing student experience for all.
