Gaa-maamawabing - Gathering Place
Located on the original lands of the Anishinaabeg, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota and Dene peoples, and on the homeland of the Métis Nation, the University of Manitoba campuses include a vibrant Indigenous community of thousands of students, staff, faculty and alumni.
The Faculty of Education's Gaa-maamawabing (Room 322) serves as an Indigenous community and learning space - a location for teaching, learning, and gathering where First Nations, Inuit, and Métis cultures, knowledges and experiences may be shared.
Anna and Inga Storgaard Learning Commons
The Anna and Inga Storgaard Learning Commons, when complete, will be a vibrant study space for use by Education students, professors and instructors, and support staff. Located in Room 333, it will also house the faculty’s K-12 lesson planning and literature library collection.
The Education collection compromises the Canadian Children's Book Centre collection from 2010 to present. The remaining children's collection, young adult literature, and instructional materials are housed in the Elizabeth Dafoe Library. Requests can be made for this and other library materials to be sent to the Education Learning Commons pickup locker.

Drama and music classroom
The Faculty of Education’s new drama and music space will be a versatile teaching, research, and presentation facility for students, faculty, and staff. Located in Room 340, the drama room will feature a black box-style theatre equipped with professional lighting and sound equipment.
The adjoining music room will be equipped with a variety of musical instruments in use in schools across the province. The two rooms can be used separately or merged into one room for larger classes and musical presentations.

Our two new science labs in rooms 300 and 309 are used to conduct science-education classes at undergraduate and graduate levels. The labs are also used for professional development, and to conduct science experiments and activities—mostly based on those found in K-12 science courses.
The laboratories are furnished with diverse science-related equipment, including lasers, microscopes, data-collection devices and glassware for chemical experiments, as well as gas outlets and required safety equipment.
