The main building of The K.C. Irving Environmental Science Centre contains state-of-the-art research laboratories, greenhouses, a conservatory, and controlled environmental facilities. A fully accessible, completely wired, 124-seat auditorium, a library and video conference centre, classrooms, lecture rooms, as well as meeting and conference rooms, also occupy these three floors. The Garden Room is a special meeting and gathering place open to students, visitors, community and faculty from 8am to 10pm every day. The room is ideal for relaxing with a book, having a quiet conversation with friends, or catching up on some work. In the colder months, a fire is always burning in the efficient Rumford Fireplace.
