Where do we go from here? The Innovation Hub and Clubs and Groups would like to invite you to an event to discuss this important question and gain insights on how the university can support campus leaders in supporting students. Themes and insights from these discussion will be used to inform the next iteration of the referral guide.

Seating area in a well-lit roomChill Spots was one of the ideas that emerged from last years Whole Student Development domain’s research. What if we could transform existing, underused spaces at a minimal cost to better meet student needs? This year, the Innovation Hub has dedicated a team of staff and students to work on the feasibility analysis of Chill Spots, in collaboration with the Innovation Hub’s UX Prototyping team. One of the ways we can measure if this idea could live at UofT is to create a minimal viable product. We invite all of you to interact with one possible version of Chill Spots at this years Exam Jam, happening Friday, Dec 8 th at Sidney Smith Hall from 11am – 3pm. Our Chill Spot will be located in the glass room at the end of the lobby. There will be activities, a place for you to relax, make friends and recharge during this stressful time of year. We look forward to seeing you there!
