Change in building identification system

Wednesday, February 4, 2015 - 9:30pm

OCAD University is changing the way buildings and rooms are identified across campus as we transition to Project Chroma, the new student information, HR and payroll system. The resulting changes will clarify room locations and improve campus navigation while accommodating future expansion.

Each building will be assigned new identification. Instead of referring to buildings by number the new system will use letters.

Example:

  • 205 Richmond St. W. (formerly building #7) becomes RHA
  • Room 7-320 becomes RHA 320
  • Alternately, it may be referred to as 205 Richmond St., room 320

100 McCaul St. room numbers will not change. The building identification will become MCA.

New signage will be gradually deployed as required and is being coordinated by Facilities Planning & Management.

Please refer to the campus map and building list for more information.
