New year, new developments! As announced in a press release this week, The University of Calgary has finally opened Mathison Hall at the Haskayne School of Business – an innovative building with a bright future.
Described as ‘transformative,’ Mathison Hall has 10,000 square metres of space and offers 12 technologically advanced classrooms, a collision space, and an 80-person round room among other things.
Said to be the home base of 4,000 students, this new addition will be and incredible place for collaboration and will play a major role in the overall success of those attending the school.
“At the University of Calgary, we say we’re a place to Start Something,” says University of Calgary President Ed McCauley.
“With the official opening of Mathison Hall, we are going to help start hundreds and thousands of careers – ones that will make Canada’s most enterprising city even more so, propelled by the entrepreneurial thinking that runs through the university’s DNA.”
“Through Mathison Hall, we are further committing to creating a place where business students will learn and thrive, and in turn, help Calgary’s economy continue to grow.”
According to the school, this project was initially announced in 2018 and cost a whopping $90 million to complete.
Luckily, thanks to the generous gift of $20 million from philanthropist and business leader, Ronald P. Mathison – their dream became a reality and in return, was named to thank its donor.
“Mathison Hall is very well suited to its future service for the Haskayne School of Business, the University of Calgary and the city of Calgary,” said the building’s namesake.
“It’s highly functional, and together with the adjacent Scurfield Hall, it will renew a home base for the business school.”
