Revitalizing a historic building
Marianopolis is in the midst of modernizing its architecturally significant building at 4873 Westmount Ave. to better support its students. This multi-year project, slated to finish by the spring of 2020, represents the most comprehensive renovation since the College moved to its current location in 2007.
Marianopolis is proud to have total continuity of all operations while heating, air conditioning and ventilation systems are upgraded, reducing the College’s environmental footprint. Spaces where students learn, study and socialize are being redesigned to meet current standards while preserving the unique features of a historic campus, which was constructed almost a century ago as Quebec’s first institution of higher education for women and which was once the home of the Sisters of the Congrégation de Notre-Dame.
The utmost is being done to minimize any and all inconvenience and disruption:
- Classes are not affected and study spaces continue to be available to students throughout the building.
- All the work is contained behind sealed temporary walls. The noisiest work takes place outside school hours. As much work as possible is being done during the summer and winter breaks.
- Students are regularly advised about any changes in location of services.
All academic support services have been relocated to one easily accessible and central area. The decision to make it easier for students to find the expert support offered at the Learning Resources Centre, Peer Tutoring, Academic Advising and AccessAbility Centre in one central area reflects the Marianopolis Mission, which starts with the credo, “The student is the centre of the Marianopolis learning community.”
