The International Student Centre’s new space on the second floor of Laurier Hall is “awesome,” says Yousef Abdullah Aldakhelallah.
“It will be very welcoming to students – the old location does not compare,” said the native of Saudi Arabia, currently enrolled in the English Language Improvement Program, as he helped carry some small boxes into the new offices Friday.
The centre has vacated its long-time home in Cody Hall, which is slated for demolition next summer.
Visitors may access the new location through a dedicated entrance from the pedestrian deck on the west side of Laurier Hall. It features a reception desk, a student lounge and two classroom spaces in addition to offices.
