Space

Any student or community group with a social or material sustainability mandate may book these common areas in the ECOLE House free of charge. We define social and material sustainability broadly. If you feel that your group’s main activities are centered around ecology, social justice, environmentalism, mental health, healing and wellness, or social justice or ecology-related journalism or fine art activities (and this is not a definitive list), feel free to request to use our space. Please note that in the event of multiple requests for the same time slot, we will prioritize those groups whose mandates align most closely with ECOLE’s.

Accessibility

  • We regret to note that ECOLE is not wheelchair accessible. The front entrance is four steps up and has two heavy doors with a buzzer system.

  • Most of the doors in the building are heavy, including washroom doors. All washrooms are single-use and non-gendered. There are unfortunately no handrails next to the toilets or sinks.

  • All rooms have fluorescent lighting, though during the day many rooms can be lit with natural light through large windows. We also have a small number of lamps and string lights available that are sufficient to light our smaller meeting spaces, so please let us know if you would like to use these for any events.

  • We cannot guarantee that ECOLE is a scent-free space.

  • Children are welcome to attend any ECOLE events. We are happy to provide childcare and/or whisper translation for any meetings, discussions, film screenings, and workshops. Please include this request in the space booking form below, at least three days prior to the event so we can guarantee childcare/translation.

  • Si vous avez besoin de la traduction chuchotée du français vers l’anglais, nous pouvons vous en fournir gratuitement. Prière de nous contactez trois jours à l’avance de l’évènement pour lequel vous souhaitezavoir accès à la traduction chuchotée.

Please fill out the form below if you would like to book a space at ECOLE for an event. Please read the following rules and guidelines before making a space booking request:

ECOLE’S Rules and Guidelines for Space Users

Hello everyone,

Thank you for being a Space-booker at ECOLE! We love hosting you, your conversations, thoughts and events clearly make ECOLE a sustainable hub on Campus. We have decided to send this email so we can keep the space clean, safe and pleasant for you. Please forward this email to all your members, volunteers, and team members so we can all be aware of the rules and contribute to keeping the space clean and pleasant.

If a rule is disrespected, your group will receive a warning email. After more than one complaint, your group may face a temporary ban for the rest of the semester.

Also useful to know is that ten Facilitators live here and are responsible for cleaning the whole house. So please kindly abide by the following:

1.  Please leave your shoes at the door (PLEASE!)

2.  Please keep noise levels down to a reasonable volume. ECOLE is home to the 10 facilitators, as well as an open space for all.

3.  ECOLE is a sustainable organization, please be mindful of the waste you produce. All groups are responsible for disposing their garbage and/or recycling. If your event is creating more garbage than can fit in the garbage cans in the communal spaces, kindly use one of the garbage bags provided and bring it downstairs to the kitchen.

4. If you are serving alcohol at an event, it is your responsibility to comply with the rules of the Government of Quebec, McGill Housing, and of the Students' Society of McGill University if you are affiliated with them. Applying for a permit takes between 15 to 21 days. Please plan accordingly. ECOLE does not have a liquor license.

5. ECOLE cannot accept more than 3 kitchen bookings per week.

6. Please have a point person for your event available to wait downstairs to let your event attendees in! That will allow them to know where to go.

7. Please respect the facilitator’s space.This includes refraining from buzzing and/or entering their bedrooms without permission, as well as avoiding entering the kitchen when you have not reserved it. The living room, the meeting room and the kitchen are bookable space.

8. Please kindly do not store materials or boxes etc. unless agreed upon prior.

9. When you are booking space, please take the time for setting up and cleaning up into consideration. Often we have back to back bookings so it’s important to respect the time constraints.

10. Spacebooking is only available on the ECOLE premises between 9 AM. and 8 PM. Please kindly respect this time constraint.

Respect is important, and it is a two way street. If you have feedback on how we can host you better, please feel free to email us at spaces.ecoleproject@gmail.com. We are also looking for volunteers, if you would like to join our event planning or communications committees, shoot us an email. Ideas, thoughts and reflections are also welcome.

We love having you at ECOLE. Your ideas, thoughts, and presence make ECOLE a community of people who care about the world. Please help us keep this space clean and respectful.

Thank you kindly,

ECOLE Facilitators.
