After being closed this summer due to mold issues, the University of Windsor has decided to permanently close Clark Residence.
Over the fall the university had conducted a feasibility study to determine the future of the two buildings. They say that based on the age of the buildings, the extensive nature of renovations needed, and the shifting demographics of students seeking residence accommodation, the decision has been made to take Clark 1 and 2 out of operation.
Clark Residence had accommodated about 150 residents, and the university says that those students have been placed in other residences on campus.
There are currently about 900 students in Alumni, Cartier, Laurier and Macdonald halls and they say that there is adequate space to meet the needs for Fall 2016.
Clark Residence will be taken down and retained as green space for future needs.
The university says by doing this, they can prioritize their investments in residences.
Electa Hall also closed to students this past April and is currently being torn down for green space.
