Black Students Lounge (KHW 77A)
The Black Student Lounge (BSL) is an identity affirming space on campus where Black students at Toronto Metropolitan University can come study, relax and build community. The lounge is offered as part of a larger effort to counter the harms of institutional racism and provide intentionally safer spaces where Black students can heal, recharge and feel a sense of belonging at the university. Although this is primarily a student-centered space, Black faculty and staff at TMU are also welcome to use the space.
