    Good morning, Afternoon,

    My name is Christopher Howell, I am wondering if Algonquin has aptitude testing to help choose a program to take? I am looking to en-roll for a second time September of 2013, Not sure of what course i would like to take.
    If someone could please direct me with information if there is such thing, that would be great,

    thank you for your time,

    Is there a work space for students to use in the new commons?
    Where do I find out about bookings?

      Hi Jenny,

      There are plenty of spaces to work in the Student Commons! Just stroll in and choose your seating. More specifically, are you looking to book a meeting room?

    Yes I am looking to book something in advance for a group project. How do I arrange one of these spaces? Thanks!

      Hi Jenny,

      Bookings are done through the Students’ Association in room E114. Some work is still being done on those spaces so date availability is subject to the needs of the construction crews. The SA does have other rooms available as well, so your best bet is to head down to E114 and ask.

      Hope that helps!

      Hi Evelyn,

      The meal plan card will be accepted at the Student Commons Starbucks. The Students’ Association hopes to have it open this week so stay tuned for the official opening!

      Thanks for your question!

      Hi Michelle,

      Thanks for the reminder! Some goods are now available in Savoir Fare, but they’ll be fully into the swing of things by the fourth week of classes (Sept 24). Hope you enjoy the new location!
