Administrative history

In 1969 the Board of Regents invited Mr. W. Collier, a student assessor member, to speak on the need for additional student union facilities. He stated that the Victoria College Union Council had begun studies, along with the Board of Regents and the Alumni, on this project. It was decided that a new joint committee should be formed to study proposals for increased student facilities. Since the fall of 1969, the Campus Centre Committee held meetings to consider the needs and prepare proposals on a centre. The Campus Centre Committee initially endorsed a plan for the new proposed building be located beneath the East quadrangle and tied into the Burwash Hall and the Victoria College building but issues around space were noted. The Committee looked into the space development of campus and problems that were being noted and in 1971, the Committee was reconstituted as the Space Use Committee and enlarged to encompass a broader representation of the university community. The remaining Campus Centre Committee did continue it's work on the Campus Centre and presented a report to the Board in 1971 noting that they had been meeting regularly with the architects who had been instructed to proceed with drawings. In 1972, the President of the University addressed the Board regarding the Campus Centre and described the objections to the project that had been raised by students concerned with the loss of the quad space. Due to this opposition, the Chairman of the Board and the President asked the architects to discontinue further work on the drawings until the Board could reconsider the matter. The Committee was instead given the task of studying the problems involved in unifying the food services of Victoria University and was reconstituted in 1972. This reconstructed Campus Centre committee created sub-committees to study various proposals and recommended to the Board that food services be amalgamated in Burwash Hall.
