As the weather gets warmer, work on the Dauphinee Centre build site is ramping up and will impact some pedestrian routes on campus.

Effective May 13 to July 31, the area between the Student Centre building and the Homburg Centre will be closed off due to construction needs. Here are some alternate routes for accessing the Homburg Centre and the field:


Coming to the Homburg Centre

From Inglis Street lot: Enter around the Student Centre building to the northwest field entrance, use track to traverse to southeast field entrance and follow pathway to Homburg Centre.

From across campus: Enter to the northwest field entrance, use track to traverse to south.

East field entrance: Follow pathway to Homburg Centre entrance.

Entrance to field

Both the southeast gate in the back parking lot and the northwest gate will be available for user groups to gain access to the field. These two entry points will be opened by staff in the morning and closed at the end of day.

Summer Camp Drop Off/Pick Up

Camp pick up/drop off will happen in both the Tower Road and Inglis Street lots with signage leading to the Homburg Centre.

Fence signage offers glimpse into the future The Dauphinee Centre

The Dauphinee Centre is sporting a new look thanks to new fence signage on the build site.

Installed in time for Homecoming, the signage showcases various members of the Saint Mary’s community, acknowledges donors, and helps promote the centre slated to open in time for the 2019 hockey season.

The signage is designed to reflect the fact that centre will make a significant contribution not only to varsity athletics but to the wellness of our entire community, with 50% of its usage capacity dedicated to community groups. SMU varsity athletes Marc Terriault and Siobhan Birch are featured wearing their Huskies gear. Another panel pictures Tyler Naugler, Assistant Coach, Men’s Hockey with his daughter as they walk by the Homburg Centre. The Saint Mary’s student body is represented with a photo of students Mohammad Ashiq, Jesus Hernandez, Jillian Taylor, Ashley Brewster and Sehmat Suri.

Additional panels highlight the Saint Mary’s University branding, and promote the arena name as well as the Pseudio Link and the Barbara Holmes Gathering Centre.
