The University of Windsor is set to expand its Centre for English Language Development to a second location on campus.

The centre features its popular English Language Improvement Program, in addition it also facilitates discipline specific language programs for students in Business, Engineering and Graduate Studies, as well as English as a Second Language teacher training.

The program, which was launched in 1999 is housed in the former Legion at 1880 Wyandotte Street West. The University purchased the facility in November 2007 and it has a student capacity of 300 students. For the last two Fall semesters, the University says enrollment has exceeded 300 students, which has forced the University to seek alternate campus space to grow the programs.

The University plans to use the existing “Winclare A” dining hall located in Vanier Hall. The hall, one of two, was used for residence students but use diminished over the years due to a decline in residence students.

The renovation will include the construction of four new classrooms for 20 to 25 students each, an admissions/reception area, washrooms, offices, meeting rooms, an entrance foyer, and support space.

The total project budget of $1,390,500. Construction is expected to start in early January 2015 with completion and occupancy in Summer 2015.
