SLC/PAC Expansion Referendum

 2016-2017 | Important Dates | Allegations | Nominees | Voting | SLC/PAC Expansion


The Feds President has spent the year working with the University and GSA to put forward a proposal for an expansion to student space on Waterloo campus. The general guiding principles for this project have been to increase student space of all kinds, both trying to catch up and meet the current demand, but also looking ahead to the enrollment growth 10 years from now. University of Waterloo has also been trying to integrate all three buildings (SLC, PAC, new project) so that student life and athletics and recreation are considered holistically. In February, this proposal will be going to referendum, when every student will be able to vote on the project.
