Brock University: Building Secrets Part 2

Hey Badgers,

Sorry it has taken me a while to write you, the holidays can be so busy sometimes. This time we will be looking at Plaza Building, and Cairns Family Health and Bioscience Research Complex.

Plaza Building

As soon as we crossed the Canadian Tire Bridge we turned into the Plaza Building. It is home to the Offices for Political Science and Economics programs. Built in 2005, the

Plaza Building

Campus store is located on the lower level. In the upper levels, you can find the Jack and Nora Walker Canadian Centre for Lifespan Development. My favourite part of this building is the large panel glass windows. There are study tables all along the windows as well as couches you can sit on. I have spent quite a bit of time studying there. It is also a cool place to people watch for a study break instead of turning on the internet.

Cairns Family Health and Bioscience Research Complex (CFHBRC)

As we pass through Plaza we enter CRHBRC. This building contains numerous laboratories for research at Brock. There are also many classrooms and a Business incubator. This building is also very environmentally friendly with large panel windows and collection of rain water on the roof (similar to Plaza). The thing I find most interesting about this building is the Level 3 containment lab.  The lab is the only one at a Canadian University. If you follow the link you can see pictures of the inside of the CL3 Lab.

As our tour progresses we will be moving to the Schmon Tower and Thistle Complex. Have a wonderful New Year’s celebration!

Till next time,



About Dustine

Hey Everyone! My name is Dustine and I am in my fourth year of the Business Administration program. However, I will be pursuing my love for teaching elementary school. Here at Brock I have lived in both styles of residence buildings and off campus as well. I have participated in many residence activities such as Residence Action Council and Residence Life Staff. I am also a very active member of Brock Dance here on campus. I come from a small town called Tavistock, Ontario. We only have one main intersection. I understand how uneasy coming to an unknown place can be. All I can say is that it was well worth it and one of the best experiences I have ever had. I look forward to meeting many of you on our amazing tours and preview days. If you have any questions you can comment on my blogs.
