Take an Open Course

All university students are welcome to take an introductory course in architecture or planning to broaden their understanding of buildings, cities, and the physical environment. Consult the university timetable for terms and class times. Except during pandemics, classes are held in the Medjuck Architecture Building (5410 Spring Garden Road at Brunswick Street) or the nearby A.L. MacDonald Building (in the middle of the Sexton Campus).
