Update of virtual tour reflects additions to campus

New buildings and outdoors spaces prompted an update to the virtual tour of campus produced by YouVisit for the Office of Enrolment Management.

“Our campus has grown since our initial iteration of this interactive, immersive introduction to the UWindsor experience,” says digital media producer Naomi Pelkey. “We have brought it up-to-date so that people anywhere in the world can see what our facilities are like, and familiarize themselves with the campus, the city, and the community.”

Pelkey added video elements and photography of the Essex Centre of Research (CORe), the SoCA Armouries, and the Alan Wildeman Centre for Creative Arts, as well as park spaces along Turtle Island Walk and on the former site of the Music Building.

A new script leads users through the tour, which allows them to explore a walkthrough or jump to a specific location on an embedded map.

“Buildings, classroom, labs and equipment are all crucial elements of our learning environment,” says Chris Busch, acting associate vice-president, enrolment management. “High-quality infrastructure facilitates better instruction, improves student outcomes and supports academic success.

“The updated campus virtual tour allows people to remotely visit UWindsor and see the historical investments that we have, and continue to make, to improve the student experience. This is something that we should be proud of and showcase to the world.”

The virtual tour is accessible from the UWindsor.ca homepage.
