Nasradin Abdusamad Ali, 23 years of age, was arrested on the same day as the fires.

He received one count of robbery, one count of assault, one count of arson in relation to inhabited property, and one count of possession of incendiary material.

Since the closure, a number of classes, exams, services, and events were relocated as the building underwent remediation.

The T building is officially open to students, staff, and the general public, and was marked with an indigenous blessing earlier this morning.

Although most areas of the facility are re-opened and fully functional, a number of offices and meeting rooms will remain under construction until June.

Students are reminded to pay extra attention to work zones, which will be clearly marked.
