University of Windsor to raze mouldy Clark Residence buildings
Like Electa Hall, Clark Residence will be taken down and retained as green space for future needs
The University of Windsor will permanently close its Clark Residence.
Neither Clark I and II residence buildings have been in use during the fall 2015 semester.
Approximately 150 spaces in University of Windsor dorms were closed this fall due to mould.
The closure allowed the university to conduct what it called a thorough feasibility study to determine the future of the buildings.
"Based on the age of the buildings, the extensive nature of renovations needed, and the shifting demographics of students seeking residence accommodation, the decision has been made to take Clark I and II out of operation," the university said in a statement Wednesday.
The Clark Residence accommodated about 150 residents, and students have been placed in other residences on campus.
There are currently about 900 students in Alumni, Cartier, Laurier and Macdonald halls and the school claims there is adequate space to meet the needs for Fall 2016.
"Closing Clark Residence, along with the closure of Electa Hall, allows for continued rationalization and renewal of the university's infrastructure," the statement said.
Like Electa Hall, Clark Residence will be taken down and retained as green space for future needs.
