Student Life

University of Alberta’s Students’ Union Building (SUB) gets a breath of fresh air with a new atrium, patio and expanded study and social spaces.

Edmonton, Alberta

More space to think

The SUB addition and renovation expands and enlivens student spaces on the main floor and lower level by interconnecting the two floors with a two-storey glazed atrium at the front entry.

Outdoor space

The atrium is framed by a new tiered and landscaped forecourt. Exterior landscaped terraces extend into the atrium's tiered casual seating, bringing the outside in.

Student services

The lower level has smarter access to student-led services and provides the lounge, retail and office spaces to better serve over 400 student groups on campus.

Set up for (even more) success

The renovation allows SUB to address weak spots that developed over their 40+ year history, and better set it up to service the student population in the future.
