The University of Windsor is buying neighboring Assumption University.

The University plans to consolidate student services at Chrysler Tower and move central administrative offices from various floors of Chrysler Hall Tower to the Assumption University building.

The total purchase price is $2.97M.

“This is a historic opportunity for the University of Windsor to ensure that the Assumption University properties forever remain a part of the campus,” said Alan Wildeman, President and Vice-Chancellor. “The Basilian Fathers shepherded our rich academic legacy for almost a century, and have provided campus ministry services to countless students, faculty and staff throughout our history. In our 50th anniversary year, the Assumption University building will become Assumption Hall of the University of Windsor, out of respect for the tradition and in anticipation that Assumption will continue as a vital part of our campus as we look ahead. We will continue to provide Assumption University with space in Assumption Hall for its needs.”
