UW Residence Building | 12 fl | Complete
I guess we know which version they went with...
From a few days ago:

Everyone move to the back of the bus and we all get home faster.
Can someone explain what we're looking at?
It's like they couldn't decide which finish to put on it, so some of it is metallic, some glass, and there are two different colours shades of brick. But it still manages to have a drab look to it.
This project can now be listed as complete.  Students arrived in September.

The building has since been named for long-time Region of Waterloo Councilor Claudette Millar.  It is now known as Claudette Millar Hall.

Taken from the University's Daily Bulletin, features of Claudette Millar Hall include:
  • 539 beds
  • 16 full bathrooms per floor
  • 5 lounges on each floor
  • Moveable furniture to promote personalization of space
  • Rooms are carpet free to help minimize indoor allergens
  • Electronic controlled access to each floor
I happened to be there during move-in, and snapped a couple pictures.

Bike parking that's up a curb:

Wheelchair access that requires you to go downhill so that you can go even further uphill:

I wonder if the designer of that is also a jerk in person?
OMG... I get it if the person was coming from the opposite site of the building (The ramp does start at the main entrance), but is there a reason they couldn't add a smaller ramp on this side?
