Niagara College to sell Dunn Street property in Niagara Falls

Niagara College’s Niagara Falls Campus will soon be listed for sale as the college focuses on development at the NOTL and Welland Campuses.

As Niagara College focuses its programs and services at campuses in Welland and Niagara-on-the-Lake, the College announced today that it will soon list its Dunn Street property in Niagara Falls for sale.

As the College invests $65 million in campus redevelopment projects in Welland and Niagara-on-the-Lake, the move will provide all Niagara College students access to an enhanced level of services, amenities and overall college experience.

“We feel the timing is right for this move,” said Niagara College president Dan Patterson. “We are making significant investments at the Welland and Niagara-on-the-Lake campuses that are modernizing our learning environments, improving our facilities and enhancing the experience that we offer students. This creates an opportunity to move the programs that operated in Niagara Falls to the Welland and Niagara-on-the-Lake campuses, while providing the best possible facilities for teaching and learning.”

Projects that are completed or underway in Welland and Niagara-on-the-Lake include enhanced student services, student commons and learning commons projects at both campuses, enhanced classroom and lab spaces, a new cafeteria at Welland and a new fitness centre and gymnasium at Niagara-on-the-Lake.

The sale will also generate savings and revenue that will be reinvested in learning resources and services that benefit all Niagara College students.

“While this decision is driven primarily by our commitment to our students, it also makes financial sense at a time when sound fiscal management is more important than ever,” said Patterson, “especially as new and improved spaces become available at our full-service Welland and Niagara-on-the-Lake campuses.”
