The Commons Lounge + Clubs Resource Centre

The newest spot in the Nest and your next favourite spot on campus.

Welcome to the commons + clubs resource centre!

New for the 2019-2020 year, the AMS has completely renovated what was previously known as the Student Life and Sustainability Centre (SLSC) into the brand new Commons Lounge and Clubs Resource Centre. We designed this space with one thing in mind: you! Students face the everyday challenge of finding a space to go with their friends, and we wanted to provide you with an option of going to somewhere a bit cozier than those plain old Nest tables.

something new for everyone

Ever felt like you and your friends just wanted somewhere new to chill? Or maybe you’re meeting someone for the first time and want to go somewhere exponentially nicer than those Nest meeting rooms? Those were the questions we had in mind. After reviewing some of the spaces and campus and seeing how we could renovate this space to fill any voids, we decide to make it something truly special – a comfortably modern lounge space for students to connect. Come in during our lounge hours, and whether you’re alone or with some company we’ve got you covered with a space to go.


Monday – Thursday 11 AM – 5 PM
Friday: 11 AM – 3 PM

sustainble foodware

With climate change on the rise, we are all conscious of our carbon footprint and how we can take steps to reduce our waste. As a club, you can purchase sustainable food ware from us, sold at-cost. Although sustainable food ware can be expensive at the store, we know it shouldn’t be – that’s why we’re here to make your life easier.
