The McGill Spaces Project (MSP) is a student-led initiative that seeks to critically reimagine McGill’s spaces and places. Through cross-campus collaboration and creative placemaking, we aim to highlight the rousing potential of underused areas around downtown campus.
As a group of dedicated undergraduate and graduate students working in collarboration with staff from Campus and Space Planning, the MSP brings student energy, faculty expertise, and staff experience together to use McGill’s campus as a living labratory. Through experimentation, we aim to explore the connections between physical spaces and our quality of life, our community, and how they contribute to the big picture of social sustainability overall.

The McGill Energy Project (MEP) is a student-led collaboration of students, staff and faculty looking to make institutional change toward sustainability in energy systems through student research applied to the McGill campus.
The MEP, partnered with the Office of Sustainability and the Utilities & Energy Management Office, seeks to facilitate applied student research relating to sustainable energy management on the McGill campus. The MEP’s mandate also extends to networking ongoing campus energy initiatives and engaging the McGill community on the topic of sustainable energy systems.
