Three houses on Patricia Road owned by Canterbury College are about to come down to make room for a new student residence.
It will be built next to the existing Geoffrey Fisher Hall, and will be across the street from green space that was home to the University of Windsor student residence Electa Hall. That was torn down several years ago due to the high cost of repairs needed.
The new three-storey structure will provide accommodation in the form of 32 single apartments and 30 rooms for shared accommodation arranged around common kitchens and living space.
“The new residence will significantly elevate the profile of Canterbury College in its role as part of the broader University of Windsor community to enrich the lives of our students,” says Dr. Gordon Drake, Principal.
Construction is set to starting September and it will be open to students in September 2019.
“The new residence building program being announced today is a continuation of its history of adaptation and expansion to meet the changing needs of the College, the University of Windsor and its students,” says Bishop Linda Nicholls, Diocese of Huron. “We continue to be partners with the College in its ministry of education to youth and seniors and housing support and look forward to the completion of this project.”
