Doors Open Hamilton: MacMaster University

Convocation Hall:

Convocation Hall is the most hallowed place on campus. Vaulted ceiling and stained glass windows lend an august mood to the site of convocations from 1930 to the late 1960s. The ceremonies have since moved to Hamilton Place, but “Con Hall” continues to be used for concerts and receptions. Bookcases display McMaster memorabilia.
Hamilton Hall:

Built in the Canadian Collegiate Gothic style, this is an example of how heritage buildings can be successfully transformed. Hamilton Hall's stunning renovation earned a Governor-General's Award (2004) and two American Institute of Architects awards (2005). The building houses the Department of Mathematics & Statistics, and Indigenous Studies.
