Duncan McArthur Hall
The redevelopment and expansion of the Duncan McArthur Hall (DMH) ‘A’ wing, will see a substantial addition to the building, and provide increased classroom, research, study, administration, and social spaces for both the Faculty of Education and elements of the Faculty of Heath Sciences.
By optimizing the development potential of the building site (as contemplated in the Queen's Campus Master Plan), Queen’s is able to address a good portion of the expansion needs of two Faculties, while also reinforcing the profile and importance of the West Campus as a part of the Queen’s community.
