Transforming Windsor Law Frequently Asked Questions

In preparation for the transformation, Windsor Law has created an FAQ page to assist students, faculty, staff and alumni by answering common questions relating to the building project. 

The transformation began in January 2021.

The transformation will last approximately 18-24 months.

In winter 2021, Windsor Law students, faculty and staff spaces were temporarily relocated to clusters around campus. Once we return to campus, a lounge dedicated to law students will be located in the CAW Student Centre along with offices for the faculty’s student services, career services, and academic coordinators. Faculty and administrative staff will have space in Vanier Hall’s Winclare Room, and the deans’ offices will be located in Lambton Tower, close to the borrowed classroom spaces. The Leddy Library will accommodate the Law Library.

Due to COVID-19*, the majority of courses will be offered through online delivery, with face-to-face offerings being provided where in-person interaction is integral to meeting program learning outcomes. Once we do return to campus, the majority of classes will be held on main campus within three main buildings (Odette School of Business, Anthony P. Toldo Health Education Centre, and the Neal Education building), in addition to some class offerings held at the downtown campus.

Signage and wayfinding information will be posted during construction, directing visitors to law clusters across campus. Information will also be located on our website and will be communicated through various University media channels. Campus tours will be modified to familiarize prospective students with the law clusters across campus.

Yes. The Windsor Law events team will work closely with the university departments to ensure event space is available. There are a variety of spaces on campus to accommodate events of various sizes, some of which are located in the same building in which classes will be scheduled. A system will be put in place to help facilitate and streamline the booking process for events.

Once the transformation is complete, the Windsor Law building will boast plenty of natural light, new classrooms, more bathrooms, a reimagined library, and plenty of collaborative and accessible spaces throughout. 

No. Due to the magnitude of the transformation, no portion of the Ron W. Ianni building will be open once the construction starts.
