London, Ontario - April 10, 2019 - Fanshawe College is pleased to announce it is in the process of
making lease arrangements to create a new campus at 1060 Wellington Road.
Continuing efforts to respond to labour market needs and limited space means the
College requires new space. After careful review and multiple site searches across
London, Fanshawe found an ideal building to lease in south London.
This building and location is ideal for Fanshawe's needs, including ample parking
on site. It offers easy access to public transit, affordable housing and many options
for shopping and food.
"Fanshawe's exceptional educational offerings and graduate employment rates continue
to attract new students from across Ontario and around the globe," said Fanshawe
President Peter Devlin. "We're pleased to be expanding our presence in this new
south London campus."
Fanshawe will welcome 250 students this fall. Additional programming will be introduced
for up to 850 Fanshawe students when renovations are complete.
The first group of students at this campus will be studying in the four graduate
certificate programs: Agri-Business Management, Business Management, Business and
Information Systems Architecture and Residence Retirement Management. All programs
will provide students with experiential learning and the skills required to meet
regional employers' needs.
Fanshawe's new London south campus will provide the same exceptional student experience
that students receive at all of its campuses and locations. This will include the
hiring of new faculty positions and student services staff, including a housing
coordinator and on-site career services counsellor.
Fanshawe is one of Ontario's largest colleges. Its campuses, located in London,
Simcoe, St. Thomas and Woodstock, serve close to half a million people with a promise
to educate, engage, empower and excite. For over 50 years, Fanshawe has been helping
people to unlock their potential and achieve success. The College attracts students
from 97 countries every year and opens up a world of possibilities through more
than 200 degree, diploma and certificate programs, along with apprenticeship training.
