Student Learning Centre

Ryerson’s Student Learning Centre (SLC) transformed the corner of Yonge and Gould into one of Toronto’s most vibrant, people-friendly intersections. Offering panoramic views of the city, high ceilings and plenty of natural light, the SLC provides an outstanding environment in which to study, collaborate and share ideas. The building stands eight storeys high and is home to Ryerson’s School of Performance, Digital Media Experience Lab, Student Learning Support and more. Truly a library of the 21st century, the SLC has become a centralized hub for student learning, activity and innovation.
