The Ryerson University new Student Learning Center (SLC) in Toronto, Canada, was designed to offer students a home away from home, complemented by an exquisite design. Tall and visually striking, Ryerson’s Student Learning Center projects an edgy but confident look.
Snøhetter of Oslo, Norway and New York City designed the SLC in tandem with Zeidler Partnership Architects of Toronto. With its glistening, gem-like façade of geometric panes, the Ryerson University SLC is eight-stories and more than 155,430 square feet. Situated in the busy heart of historic Toronto at the intersection of Gould and Yonge Streets, it provides Ryerson students with everything they need to excel in the 21st century. The floors are named after elements in nature or landscape features such as The Bluff, The Beach and The Garden, and each incorporates a range of study options, social spaces and student services, all with the latest in technology and support. In addition to the convenient bridge that leads to Ryerson’s existing library next door, the SLC features a café and retail spaces.
