Relocating the Schools of Visual Arts and Music into the downtown core, will allow students and faculty alike to practise, perform and exhibit their works within walking distance of Windsor's major artistic venues.
These programs will reside in the re-imagined Windsor Armouries. The Windsor Armouries which once served as a place where men and women dedicated themselves to the service of our country, will continue to be a place of human emotion, learning and inspiration.
Music students will have easy access to major performing venues which include All Saints Church, Phog, Milk Coffee Bar, Art Gallery of Windsor. The office of the Windsor Symphony Orchestra is located just a few short blocks from the Armouries. Students can take-in concerts of international and high profile performers at Caesars Colosseum, St. Clair College for the Performing Arts or choose from the many music clubs in the city.
The downtown core is also home to the Art Gallery of Windsor and the Artcite gallery. These venues provide Visual Arts students access to inspirational works. The region boasts many art venues within close proximity to our downtown campus.

Pending a positive outcome of the feasibility study to move the School of Social Work to the Windsor Star building, students will be uniquely positioned within blocks of critical social service agencies. Field placements in the downtown core present an opportunity to significantly broaden the bandwidth between important academic programming and the needs of our community.
The Centre for Executive and Professional Education (CEPE) facilitates professional growth through degree programs and professional development workshops. Relocation to the Windsor Star complex, currently under consideration, would further its reach beyond the main campus to provide exceptional education that is critical in developing professional skills.
