Construction Under Way: L.R. Wilson Hall

 L.R. Wilson Hall


A new liberal arts facility is being constructed on east campus on the former location of Wentworth House. The new L.R. Wilson building is made possible by a $45.5-million investment from the province of Ontario and a $10-million dollar gift from McMaster’s Chancellor L.R. (Red) Wilson. The building will hold a number of new facilities shared between the Faculty of Humanities and the Faculty of Social Sciences.

The new building will include:
  • Flexible learning classroom space with reconfigurable classroom spaces
  • New Experiential Eduction Offices
  • Research spaces and labs
  • 350-seat concert hall
  • Black box theatre
  • Café and student commons
  • Outdoor garden
