Plan Your Visit
We like to think of ourselves as a small space with a big presence. Whether you're in need of a short break away from the stress of the day or are looking for a longer escape, the Lakeshore Grounds Interpretive Centre has you covered.

The Lakeshore Grounds Interpretive Centre maintains two spaces in the Student Welcome and Resource Centre:
Our main exhibit space is located off the lobby of the Student Welcome and Resource Centre in WEL104 (directly beside Starbucks). This staffed space features two exhibits a year, running mid-January to the end of May and mid-July to the end of November.
We also maintain an art space in the third floor hallway of the same building. Exhibits feature local artists or students and connect to the local history of the Lakeshore Grounds. We feature 3-4 exhibits per year in this space.
