Campus and Buildings
New buildings, classrooms, and laboratories with state-of-the-art equipment have been constructed at both Carleton and Algonquin to ensure that BIT students have the opportunity to work with the best technology available. Ontario's SuperBuild program has enabled both institutions to build facilities specifically for the program.
The David J. Azrieli Pavilion
The School of Information Technology calls the Daniel J. Azrieli Pavilion home. Overlooking the Rideau Canal, and just across the quad from the MacOdrum Library and Tory Building, the Azrieli Pavilion was opened to students during the Fall of 2002, and is one of the newest buildings on Carleton University's campus.
BIT students have access to the many resources within the building, such as the large multimedia lecture theatres and state of the art laboratories for work and research.

The Advanced Technology Centre
The new academic building at the Woodroffe Campus of Algonquin College is a 120,000 sq ft. 3-storey classroom/laboratory block with 2nd story covered links to the J and N Buildings. The building incorporates its own heating and cooling plant in a roof-top penthouse.
The facility houses the majority of the Advanced Technology programs that were previously located in the College's Rideau Campus, and was designed as a "showcase" facility that would reflect the nature of the Advanced Technology programs. Spaces in this building include theory classrooms, computer labs, electronic labs, a 225-seat amphitheatre and staff offices. It incorporates electronic display and teaching systems and equipment. The facilities accommodate state-of-the-art technologies and provide flexibility in terms of infrastructure capacity and configuration for future developments.*
