Your classrooms, labs and study spaces
The school's courses are delivered in spaces in all four academic buildings, in a variety of tiered classrooms, lecture theatres, demonstration labs and seminar rooms. Student space areas have been developed in newly renovated areas, provided ergonomic and comfortable places to review material or discuss classes with your peers. Of course the main area for study and collaboration is the Ferriss Hodgett Library. The library has more than 1,000,000 volumes and access to the Queen Elizabeth II library on the St. John's Campus, which houses over 5,000,000 volumes. The Memorial University Library system has the largest collection of online resources in Atlantic Canada.
You will find your classes are inherently interdisciplinary, filled with peers who possess a multitude of interests. Outside of your declared major, there will be many opportunities to experience new disciplines in your elective courses, and you will be exposed to a myriad of new ideas and points of view. As a campus that embraces inclusivity, Grenfell is proud to have a student body that is varied and multicultural, as well as academically diverse.
