The FIMS community moved into the FIMS & Nursing Building in December 2016, while the building opened for general use in September 2017. Shared with the Faculty of Health Sciences' Nursing program, the 130,000 sq. ft. building sits on the corner of Huron Drive and Lambton Drive. The space includes media studios, flex space, an expanded FIMS Graduate Library, and common areas for gathering, studying and interacting, with a premium on seating and break-out areas for students. Natural light is also an important feature, with large walls of windows found on all sides of the building.
