The Richard Ivey Building
The Ivey MBA Program takes place in a new facility, the Richard Ivey Building, located just across the street from the main campus of Western University.
One of the most exciting features in The Richard Ivey Building is the Case Classroom. Designed for active conversation rather than traditional lecturing, the Case Classrooms are the foundation of Ivey's case-based education model. The classrooms have state-of-the-art technology, tiered seating, and dimensions and layout that ensure each student has an optimal view of all classmates, which facilitates student engagement. Every class has natural light and views of the outdoors, fundamental to a learning space that is humane and inspiring.
For quiet work or group collaboration, approximately 70 breakout rooms line the entire outside wall of the building with approximately 40 additional study rooms suitable for recruiting interviews or small team discussions.
There are a number of housing options within a short walking distance to campus, although many students choose to live downtown. Check here for more information on housing.
Parking & Transportation
There are numerous on-campus options for parking. Learn more about Parking at Western University. Many students also bike to school – there are bike racks available outside both entrances to the Ivey building.
Additionally, Western University is well-served by London Transit. There are many bus routes that connect through campus.
Play and Recreation
Ivey’s campus is directly on a bus route and short drive or cab ride to downtown London with access to many bars and restaurants, theatre, and sports venues like the Budweiser Gardens.
The Richard Ivey Building is across the street from Western University’s brand new $35 million dollar recreational facility that offers fitness classes, intramurals, squash courts, a swimming pool, aerobic equipment, weight machines, and more.
