Our Priorities

CAMPUS 

In its classrooms, laboratories and libraries, a university campus impacts the learning experiences of students — and the ability of researchers to make the next discovery.

 

The University of Windsor acknowledges how important a sense of place is to anyone who visits, works, or studies here. It is critical that we provide an environment of collaboration, creativity, and interdisciplinary activities, both on campus and within our community.

 

The University is now undergoing a major campus revitalization that integrates historical elements with new, bold designs. We are improving learning and research with facilities and equipment such as:

• New classrooms that blend lecture, lab and group learning in one dynamic space.

• Bright, open spaces that integrate the best of modern design, heritage features and green technologies to create a campus that is welcoming, comfortable, and environmentally responsible.

 

These improvements, both large and small, will provide a foundation for the future of investigation and innovation in an environment that is friendly, green, and visually inviting.

 

Funding Priorities for the Campus

 

MAIN CAMPUS DEVELOPMENTS

The University campus has recently undergone significant changes:

 

THE ED LUMLEY CENTRE FOR ENGINEERING INNOVATION

A “living building” that is wired for student study – bringing engineering to life.

JOYCE ENTREPRENEURSHIP CENTRE

Provides business incubation space for students and the community.

ODETTE SCHOOL OF BUSINESS

A building expansion to enhance student learning opportunities.

 DR. MURRAY O’NEIL MEDICAL EDUCATION CENTRE

A third-floor completion serves as an interdisciplinary centre for the Health Sciences.

 

 WELCOME CENTRE

Serves as the front door of the University.

THE SCIENCE RESEARCH AND INNOVATION FACILITY

Scheduled to open in spring 2018, will enable Science to reach its full potential in a state-of-the-art collaborative space. The University’s research capacity will benefit from investment that will, in turn, benefit our region and country.

PROPOSED LANCER SPORT AND RECREATION CENTRE

 Will allow for flexible varsity space options, greater intra-mural involvement, and enhanced community use.

UNIVERSITY MASTER PLAN 

Is creating a variety of multi-purpose, pedestrian, green spaces across campus, which began with the closure of Sunset Avenue in 2014. These initiatives include:

Renaming the former Sunset Avenue Turtle Island Walk to recognize our affinity with Indigenous peoples.

Renaming Patricia Street  Alistair MacLeod Walk to recognize one of Canada's greatest authors, and one of the University’s most beloved professors.

 

DOWNTOWN CAMPUS

 

SCHOOL OF SOCIAL WORK AND THE CENTRE FOR EXECUTIVE AND PROFESSIONAL EDUCATION

Is located at the historic corner of Pitt and Ferry streets. The building honours the former home of The Windsor Star and makes a bold statement about the University's commitment to the vibrancy of Windsor's core. 

THE WINDSOR ARMOURIES AND TUNNEL BAR-B-Q SITE will be recast for the creative arts, offering for the first time purpose-built facilities for music, visual arts, and film production.

The generosity of our leadership donors will continue to bring this vision to life.
