The Arts Lounge is now complete and ready for students to use. It is located on the first floor of the Social Sciences Building.
Currently, the lounge is not fully-furnished. However, the Students’ Union is in the process of filling the lounge with useful amenities for students.
Faculty of arts representatives developed the initiative for the lounge in 2010.
According to third-year U of C English student and faculty of arts representative Kelsy Norman, the space will make a great social environment.
“You can go in there and you can chill out, lounge out and spend time with fellow arts students,” said Norman. “The next step for us will be to upgrade the furniture, but we are just happy to finally have it open.”
Fourth-year U of C communications student and faculty of arts representative Sarah Damberger said there will be an official opening on Feb. 12 at 12 p.m.
“I’m really happy that it’s finally happening. I think that students are really excited to use the space,” said Damberger.
