Our Resources

Kitchenette

Keep your lunch cold or heat it up in our kitchenette! For day-use, we have a fridge, microwaves, hot water dispenser and toaster!

Please Note: There is no eating at the CTC at this time in accordance with The Hub guidelines. The Husky Den is open for students and guests to eat in. 

Day Use Lockers

Store your heavy books and backpack in our lockers. Space is big enough to fit a bike helmet and/or motorcycle helmet. Lockers are day-use check out only and are offered on a first-come first-serve basis but commuter and transfer students have priority. HUB offers long-term locker rentals.

Changing Room & Lactation Station

This private room has a chair, table, mini-fridge, soft lighting, a hand-washing station, and power adapters. The station provides a clean and private alternative to using a bathroom or other public space. Use of this space is possible on days when the CTC is closed — check in with the HUB front desk for access.
