Renovations to the Ron W. Ianni Faculty of Law Building on the University of Windsor campus are set to start this summer.

It was in late 2018 that the University said they will not move the Law School downtown, but would move forward with plans for the existing building on the main campus.

Since then the University chose Diamond Schmitt Architects to plan the building renovation.

Plans for the building include natural light, enhancing sightlines, increasing occupant comfort, and addressing accessibility beyond physical spaces .

Construction will take 18 to 24 months and during that work, the building will be closed and nearly 800 Windsor Law students, faculty, and staff will temporarily relocate around the rest of the campus.

The bulk of classes will remain on main campus in the Odette School of Business, Toldo Health Education Centre, and the Neal Education Building, witha  few moved downtown.

A lounge dedicated to law students will likely be located in the CAW Student Centre, along with offices for the faculty’s student services, career services, and academic co-ordinators.

Faculty and administrative staff will have space in Vanier Hall’s Winclare Room, and the deans’ offices will be located in Lambton Tower, close to the borrowed classroom spaces.

The Leddy Library will accommodate the Law Library.

Full details can be found on the UWindsor Law School website here.
