Facilities

The Briercrest College and Seminary campus includes a range of facilities.

The Hildebrand Chapel is a Prairie landmark that facilitates community-wide chapels, Sunday services, and many campus events. With a seating capacity of well over 2,000, it is the largest chapel in the province.

Known as the Academic Complex the main building wing houses college classrooms, faculty offices, business offices for the schools, as well as Caronport High School.

The Henry Budd Seminary Wing has an atmosphere that is conducive to study and discourse. The classrooms are a comfortable and stimulating learning environment.

The Archibald Library is the hub of research activity on campus, with over 68,000 books, a 27-computer research centre, and a spacious study area.

The Crossroads Cafe, located directly beside the seminary wing, provides a casual setting for students to relax and unwind or discuss new ideas over a cup of coffee.  During the school year lunches are also available, along with snacks and cold beverages.

The Point is the campus student centre. Its coffeehouse ambience is the perfect location for a good conversation over a cup of coffee or a Subway™ sandwich.
