Learning Environment

Goodes Hall is the home of Smith School of Business on the Queen’s University campus. However, the School’s learning environment extends well beyond the walls of this amazing building. With an off-campus conference centre in Kingston, a state-of-the art facility in downtown Toronto, and Boardroom Learning Centres across Canada, Smith School of Business is truly Canada’s business school.

Goodes Hall

Goodes Hall, the home of Smith School of Business, combines the history of a preserved 1892 schoolhouse, with the contemporary design, architecture and cutting-edge learning tools of a modern business school. Named in honour of the family of Mel Goodes, a Commerce ‘57 alumnus, Goodes Hall was conceived, designed and constructed not just as a building, but also as a community. The guiding principle from the outset was to create a space that would enable maximum interaction between the School’s students, faculty and staff. This state-of-the-art, 188,000 square foot facility includes a large central atrium, 16 classrooms, 20 meeting rooms, a fully accessible non-denominational prayer/quiet room as well as faculty and administrative offices. The building’s west wing, which opened in 2012, has been LEED ® Gold certified.

Goodes Hall is also home to the School's impressive videoconferencing studios, which allow professors to see and converse with their Executive MBA students in boardroom learning centres in cities across North America.
