Known to most as Victoria College, the university is autonomous and is located on the parcels of land to the north and south of Charles St. between Bay St. and Queen’s Park Cr. Arguably, this is one of the most handsome parts of the University of Toronto, distinguished by a collection of heritage and modern buildings, draped in ivy, and framing stately quadrangles and beautiful gardens. The Goldring Student Centre created a much-needed hub of student activity on the Vic campus, providing space for meeting rooms, offices for student government and more than 20 student clubs, a renovated café, a two storey lounge, an assembly space, a newly defined quadrangle and the addition of much-needed lockers for commuter students.
The “GSC” provides a welcoming space for socializing and learning beyond the classroom in which Vic students can thrive. Symtech Innovations completed all of the electrical work to the addition that doubled the space of the former Wymilwood student union building to 40,000 sq.ft. Work was not restricted to adding to one end of the existing Wymilwood building, but included extensive restoration work to the original building, and a new atrium on the north side of Wymilwood, helping to create better flow through the building. The rooms provide space for offices for student government and more than 20 student clubs, a renovated café, a two-storey lounge and assembly space.
