The University of Windsor is building a new student residence.

The six-storey building will feature 440 private rooms arranged in suites with two rooms sharing a bathroom. The 160,000 square foot floorplan will also feature relevant amenities for students and will be located on Sunset Avenue between Wyandotte and Union Streets, and will be ready to welcome students ahead of the Fall 2025 semester.

The project is made possible by a public-private partnership with Tilbury Capital, a local real estate investment, development, and management company.

“The University of Windsor is thrilled to be able to offer yet another option of residence to our students,” said Dr. Phebe Lam, UWindsor’s acting associate vice-president, student experience. “Having a modern, comfortable, and vibrant living environment supports student engagement, growth and experience.”

The university currently has four residence buildings—Residence Hall West, Laurier Hall, Cartier Hall and Alumni Hall. Each year, UWindsor welcomes 150 – 350 students in each residence and thousands more living in private, off-campus rental accommodations.

“We are pleased to partner with the University of Windsor to bring additional student housing to campus,” said Michael Kaye, Partner, Tilbury Capital. “We are excited to begin work on this momentous project.”

The university will be breaking ground next spring.
