McDougall Hall is the newest building on campus, opening in fall 2008. It houses the School of Business, the Centre for Life-long Learning, Three Oaks Innovation Inc., the Centre for Enterprise and Entrepreneurship, the PEI Bioalliance, Co-operative Education, International Education, and the Tourism Research Centre. The award-winning 50,000-square-foot building was showcased in the August 2008 issue of Canadian Architect.
McDougall Hall is fast becoming a favourite conference facility, with the 170-seat MacKinnon Auditorium, several smaller break-out session rooms, and Schurman Market Square which is an excellent reception area.
The outside is clad in copper, which will weather and change colour over time. The building is designed to take advantage of energy from the natural environment, utilizing geothermal energy to both heat and cool interior space.
