Board approves construction of south campus sports centre

The new Lancer Sport and Recreation Centre moved one step closer to reality last week with the University Board of Governors approving the construction of the new centre at its May 22 meeting.

The board’s approval followed the signing of an agreement between the University and the three student bodies — the University of Windsor Students’ Alliance, the Graduate Student Society, and the Organization of Part-time University Students — on governance matters related to the financial contribution of students as a result of the referendums passed, putting the fees in place.

A number of details remain to be worked out before the project can proceed to tender. Construction is slated to start in summer 2019.
