Welcome to Carleton University’s centre for undergraduate research and student engagement. Officially opened in 2013, the Discovery Centre was built to provide a much-needed atmosphere where undergraduate students could realize their full potential through collaborative and interactive learning. It was designed as a place for students where ideas are shared, art and design objects are displayed and various events are hosted.

The aim of the Discovery Centre is to be a flexible and inspirational learning space that will evolve with the Carleton community over time. Recognizing the value in developing partnerships between students and instructors, the Discovery Centre provides opportunities for undergraduates to participate in course design and faculty supervised research.
