The Brace Building was renovated in 2007-2008 to include a refurbished larger conference room on the ground floor and, on the first floor, six new bedrooms with bath, a kitchenette, graduate student office/work area and a new computer laboratory.  Accommodation on site includes 16 bedrooms with twin beds (with and without bath), the self-contained (newly renovated) one-bedroom Seabourne Apartment, and the three-bedroom Seabourne House. About 40 visitors can be accommodated at one time, and meals are served on request. Holiday guests are also welcome, subject to room availability. The "new" Brace Building was opened officially during a McGill Alumni Reception on November 28, 2008.
