Huron breaks ground on new residence, shares cancelled plans to separate from Western

Huron University has officially broken ground on its new residence building, which is set to open in Fall 2024. The new building will include 311 student rooms, lounges and study spaces, a dining facility and café, classrooms, and more. At the ground-breaking ceremony, CTV News and the London Free Press report that Huron President Barry Craig shared that the institution no longer plans to separate from Western University. “It’s a question of recognizing that the affiliation should be something that strengthens all of us, not one large partner and three small partners dragging along in the wake, but all four of us working together,” said Craig, who credited Western President Alan Shepard for setting a positive tone with the affiliate institutions. “I think that’s the tone we see now.” Huron| CTV News| London Free Press Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
