Dal unveils new $64M facilities with support from industry, students 

October 15, 2018

Dalhousie University has officially opened two new buildings at its downtown campus that will house programs in its engineering and architecture faculties. CBC reports that the $64M facilities were funded by the federal government and several of the region’s largest corporations, which include energy conglomerate Emera and Irving Oil. $7M in student fees also helped pay for the building, CBC adds. “With all this expansion, there's a lot more space for us to work actually on this campus rather than go off campus between classes. We can stay on campus. It's really nice to see how the faculty and the community has really come together,” said Electrical Engineering Sierra Sparks. CBC | Dal
