Since 1922 University College has dominated the hill overlooking the Thames River, inspiring incoming generations of students, staff and faculty to set their sights high. For more than 90 years, it has been an iconic representation of our academic aspirations. But after all those years, the interior infrastructure was no longer able to match the majestic exterior.

Western has just completed a major renovation that will prepare University College to house the 21st century academic experience. Critical elements, like plumbing, wiring, heating, ventilation and windows were upgraded. Classrooms have been outfitted with modern technology, and student and community spaces have been given attractive new settings and improved connectivity. The result will help to shape the academic goals and aspirations of the Faculty of Arts and Humanities for decades to come.
