Physics, Engineering Physics and Astronomy Open House

Please register so we can anticipate who's coming, however, alumni may enjoy the open house day-of without registration. 

Built between 1962 and 1964, Stirling Hall is a distinctive round building located on Bader Lane was originally meant to be situated on the lower campus between Kingston General Hospital and Theological Hall. Well-publicized protests from students, faculty, and alumni upset with the rapid pace of campus development, however, led to the preservation of that area as a green space. A notable feature of Stirling Hall is a Foucault Pendulum, which hangs in the centre of the second floor. The pendulum swings in a pattern and at a speed determined by the rotation of the earth and the latitude of Kingston.

This event will begin in the foyer of Stirling Hall. An accessible entrance to the building can be found on Stuart Street. Learn more about accessibility at Stirling Hall. For inquiries or accommodations, please contact Sarah Chapman, Communications and Events Officer.
