The SSMU Building is visited by thousands of people each year and is one of campus’s best spots to eat, gather, and let loose. Inside you’ll can find campus clubs, SSMU services, a cafeteria, a restaurant, a legal information clinic, a smoothie bar, a student lounge (with couches!), and more.
On March 14th, 2018, the SSMU has acquired the building located at 3501 Peel Street. For the moment, some of the spaces are used by certains SSMU club and services, Mini Courses and external groups.
