The Toronto Metropolitan University community is encouraged to use the SLC in ways that support the five SLC principles. On top of studying, university community members can use the SLC for events through tabling opportunities, reputation-enhancing floor activations, and Amphitheatre bookings.

 The use of SLC is determined by guidelines supported by students. As such, all SLC event bookings are considered according to the following:

  1. Be reputation-enhancing by design
  2. Enhance the academic and overall student experience
  3. Be intentional in its effort to collaborate with an existing group/initiative/activity/resource on campus
  4. Be welcoming to any student or TMU community member
  5. Be inclusive in considering how to make the activity accessible by minimizing barriers for attendance

The SLC Amphitheatre is an L-shaped space filled with tiered casual seating for approximately 100 people overlooking an open concept floor with over 800 square feet of unobstructed space (standing room for approx. 90 people). Activities can also engage many indirect participants due to the open design. 

Be creative! Priority will be given to activities that are non-traditional in their approach to programming, use of space and student engagement. To qualify, your activity must:

  • Be reputation-enhancing by design
  • Enhance the academic and overall student experience
  • Be intentional in its effort to collaborate with an existing group/initiative/activity/resource on campus
  • Be welcoming to any student or TMU community member
  • Be inclusive in considering how to make the activity accessible by minimizing barriers for attendance


Space is free of charge for sanctioned student groups and individual students or groups of students to conduct course work or to fundraise for course-related activity

Space is intended for student engagement activity. It should not be used as means to gain personal study space or for commercial purposes.

The SLC is Toronto Met’s front door on Yonge Street and a world-class learning destination. Design your activity keeping in mind that the SLC is in a high-traffic location and is Toronto Met’s gateway to the community.

The SLC is an academic building. A priority of the Academic Plan is the Student Experience. Check out the Plan ( (PDF file) PDF |   (PDF file) Accessible PDF) for ideas on how to align your activity to meet this criteria.

There are many existing groups, initiatives and resources on campus. We encourage you to take advantage of what is out already there. Discover them by searching through some of the resources provided by ExploreTMU.

This is a world-class learning destination and TMU students are notoriously creative. If there are two requests to use the space for the same date and time, the one who has the most innovative way of maximizing the SLC space will be given the green light.

The Amphitheatre is located on the main floor and adjacent to the lobby of the SLC. It is an open space that promotes an inclusive environment. All activities taking place in the Amphitheatre should have an inclusive design that is engaging and inviting for anyone in the vicinity. Consideration to minimizing barriers for attendance is critical in this expansive space.

It’s simple. Once you’ve visited the space and decided that it’s the right venue for your activity, simply follow the guidelines above and  (google form) fill out the form (external link) . Once the request form has been submitted, the SLC Events Committee will get back to you with details on next steps in the planning process.

Requests for the Amphitheatre must be submitted at least six weeks before the event date. The earliest you can submit a request is six months before the event date.
