RedeemerU officially opens $22M Charis Live and Learn Centre

April 8, 2022
Redeemer University has officially opened its new Charis Live and Learn Centre. The $22M building’s name comes from a Greek word that means grace, kindness, and life. The 77,000-square-foot facility is the largest building since Redeemer constructed its Ancaster location in 1986, and includes 170 beds for students, classrooms, and breakout rooms. The facility will also house the new Centre for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, which includes a makerspace. “The Charis Live and Learn Centre will accommodate Redeemer’s enrolment growth over the coming years supporting the unique, communal residence experience that enhances students’ educational development by shaping them spiritually, emotionally and interpersonally,” said RedeemerU President Dr David Zietsma. The building was designed with environmentally sustainable features such as a rainwater recycling system, hot water heating, and LED lighting. RedeemerU | Hamilton Spectator (ON)
