Make an impact in the lives of students, and our community, for generations to come. Support the development of our newest building, Allard Hall.

We’re excited to announce that our newest building will be named Allard Hall. Known during its construction as the Centre for Arts and Culture, the building will now carry the Allard name in recognition both of the Allard family’s long-standing financial support of MacEwan and of their most recent gift, a $2.5 million donation that will provide scholarships and bursaries for students in the Faculty of Fine Arts and Communications and the School of Business.

Allard Hall will be first and foremost a teaching facility that provides purpose built spaces with state-of-the-art technology, classroom and performance areas essential to our students’ educational experience and to meet university requirements. More diversified course offerings and advanced technology will better create well-rounded, future-ready students in visual and performing arts, Design Studies, and Arts and Cultural Management.

Allard Hall is designed to support the program offerings and the talent developed within the Faculty of Fine Arts and Communications. It is an innovative and collaborative venue to provide students, faculty and staff with the unique spaces they need to explore and build on their creative talents and abilities.

Help us reach that goal – Make your impact by donating to the development of Allard Hall today.
