Newly constructed buildings at the University of Toronto Camp have received the first student occupants
The newly constructed buildings at the University of Toronto Camp on Gull Lake, near Minden, Ont., were opened with little fanfare on Saturday, August 14, 2021. Students, fresh off a bus from downtown Toronto, disgorged promptly with luggage and sought out their assigned rooms less than an hour after rooms were cleaned and beds installed. Nevertheless, students were properly impressed.
Utterances of “Wow. Cool. Nice,” were heard as eyes gazed upwards to high ceilings in the HCAT Bunkhouse, the MacGillivray Common Room, washrooms and the individual private shower rooms.
Occupancy limits for rooms have been imposed as safety precautions during the pandemic, with the usually expected bunkbeds not yet put to use.
Finishing touches, such as permanent signage – both indoors and outdoors – will be installed after Survey Camp is completed.
