Wyckham House history
Mount Royal students have always been visionary and strongly independent. Back in 1964, students received a government grant to be used for the creation of a student building. Students also used a portion of the activity fee to create a building fund which would eventually be used to build a student centre.
Prior to the building of the Lincoln Park Campus, the original Wyckham House student centre was located in a run-down, old house near the original MRC downtown campus. The house was named after an instructor, Robert Wyckham, who encouraged students to be independent. After moving to the Lincoln Park Centre, the Students’ Association owned space within the college. Students, however, were dissatisfied and wanted their own space.
Officially opened in September 1987, Wyckham House is the student centre for Mount Royal University, owned and operated by students. Wyckham House recently celebrated celebrated its 30 year anniversary in 2017, along with the 50-year anniversary of the Students’ Association as a legal entity. In 2007, the Students’ Association completed an expansion project in Wyckham House to provide more space and services to its student membership.
