Algonquin College reveals design for new Pembroke campus

April 28, 2011

On Wednesday, Algonquin College unveiled the design for its $36-million waterfront campus in Pembroke, scheduled to open in fall 2012. Among the campus' many features is Renaissance Hall, a focal point in the facility that will include a student commons, cafeteria, and access to student services. The 2-storey Kathleen and F. Allan Huckabone Library will face the Ottawa River and be showcased near the front entrance to the building. The campus will feature 16 classrooms and 9 laboratories, including 3 nursing labs, a science lab, and an automotive shop. Most of the project's funding will come from the college with the help of its students' association, which has committed $4.3 million to support the addition of student recreational and social space. A community capital campaign is underway to raise $2.5 million for the project. Algonquin College News
