JDUC blueprints unaccounted for

University and AMS declined to release blueprints

Student dollars fund the majority of the JDUC project.

With approximately one year left of construction, the University and AMS are withholding blueprints for the new JDUC building.

The Journal contacted the AMS requesting blueprints for proposed student spaces in the JDUC new build. In an e-mail, AMS Communications Director Mikayla Crawford wrote the AMS didn’t have access to blueprints, despite the AMS providing The Journal with blueprints to the proposed new space for the Queen’s Pub in March.

The University declined The Journal’s request for documents, citing club space allocation is the responsibility of the AMS.

Funding for the JDUC redevelopment project was passed in a campus-wide referendum in 2019, when 52.3 per cent of voters casted a ballot in favour of implementing a student fee to fund the project. The referendum passed with just 210 votes.

According to the JDUC redevelopment website, the JDUC is meant to house student government offices, allocate space for over 100 student clubs, and include a discrete wellness space. CoGro, Tricolour Outlet, and QP will have larger spaces in the new JDUC.
