Overview

Space

Region: Toronto

Address: 46 Spadina Ave.

Lighthouse Labs is based out of Canada’s most dynamic tech hubs, where you’ll be immersed into full­-stack web or iOS development through hands­-on experience. Our industry driven­curriculum and rigorous education standards have created the ultimate result for our graduates: over 95% employment rate.​

The campus is located in the heart of downtown Toronto at D​evhub; ​Canada's first and only coworking space exclusively for developers. The beautiful 12,000 sq. ft. brick & beam space is filled with meeting rooms, customized wall art, natural light and open-­concept coworking areas. Devhub members and Lighthouse Labs students are immersed in the developer community with 24/7 access to the campus, couches and beer fridge, plus the support of a brilliant team of instructors and mentors.

Get School'd­ – Classroom

The open concept student space includes a ton of unique features that makes it a hub for students, instructors and mentors to learn and grow together. The classroom component of the room consists of grouped wired desks (that double as white boards), lounge space, bean bag chairs, and a built­in satellite system for remote students. Visually, the space is bright and open, lined with windows and columns. The furniture can be reconfigured to create event space. You can find upcoming events on their M​eetup page.

Devhub – Developer Education & Coworking Space

Devhub launched in April 2016 as Canada's first education and coworking space exclusively for developers. In this space, developers from across Canada can come and connect to work on software projects of all sizes, while benefitting from the community immersion and mentorship found at Lighthouse Labs.

In launching Devhub, Lighthouse Labs was able to design the space from the ground up. It’s fully catered to developers, and includes glass desks, white boards, Herman Miller chairs, lounges, a community wall and more. There’s also custom pixelated portraits of notable developers, designed by Lighthouse Labs’ Designer, Andrew Tsang.

Lighthouse Labs aims to be the dev community together at any chance they get.
