Project Profiles > School of Accounting and Finance,
University of Waterloo



The School of Accounting and Finance is a three-storey addition to Hagey Hall, the largest lecture theatre facility on campus. This faculty provides research and teaching at the graduate and undergraduate level in the field of Accounting.

This building provides much needed offices, meeting rooms, seminar rooms and lecture theatres. Situated in a large gap between buildings, the School of Accounting and its main atrium provide a connection between new and existing spaces and acts as hub for the University community.


Constructed of red brick and glazed curtain walls with copper and wood detailing, this addition blends and extends the styles and materials of the existing building and adjacent structures. The building contains four 75-seat lecture halls, two 50-seat lecture halls and one 200-seat lecture theatre, as well as a student lounge on the second floor, faculty offices on the third floor, and various amenity and service spaces. The third floor overlooks an intensive green roof on the large lecture theatre.
