Naming Opportunities

Supporters of MacEwan University are inspired by the scholarly activity and creative work that take place here—inspired enough to lend their names to the spaces where our students learn, live and play.

Naming a learning space or event venue is a meaningful way to remember a loved one, honour a colleague, mark the philanthropic efforts of your organization or show your support for the MacEwan University community.

What's in a name?

Named in recognition of MacEwan supporters Ron and Dorothy Triffo, our biggest stage gives students and community groups a place to dance, sing, act and perform in the heart of Edmonton. "The arts are essential to a vibrant, dynamic and thoughtful community," says Ron.

Allard Hall

Allard Hall was named in recognition of the Allard family’s long-standing financial support of MacEwan University, including a $2.5 million donation. Funds will be used to support scholarships and bursaries for students in the School of Business and the Faculty of Fine Arts and Communications.

Buy a seat, support the arts

Purchase a seat plaque in one of Allard Hall's performance spaces and support MacEwan's place in downtown Edmonton's thriving arts scene. If you donate $500 or more, you can choose a name that will be displayed on a seat in the Betty Andrews Recital Hall or the Triffo Theatre.


It’s nice to know that many people will sit in that very seat to enjoy the performances of students and visiting artists. What better way is there for staff and faculty to acknowledge the energy, dedication and talent of our students?
