Carleton University Not Proceeding With Performing Arts Centre

(Ottawa)--Carleton University has decided not to proceed with the development of a performing arts facility.

After reviewing the situation, the University concluded that the operating costs of such a facility would be prohibitive. Carleton University also concluded that undertaking a successful fundraising initiative for a major performing arts facility would be challenging in the current fund raising environment.

Carleton is in the midst of its biggest building boom ever and is proceeding with a number of other construction projects that will continue to enhance the student experience. The University will open a new twin-pad ice house in September, a new Fire Research Facility in the next few months, a new Human Computer Interaction Lab (HCI) and a Centre for Advanced Studies in Visualization and Simulation (VSIM) in the fall of 2006. Carleton is also proceeding with a major expansion and renewal of its University Centre to further enhance the student experience.
