Laurentian lists president’s house for sale

Laurentian University has listed its president’s house. The house was first purchased by the university in 1965 and it has been used over the years to host guests and community gatherings. A 2023 email from the president’s office noted that “notwithstanding its historical significance, our current and future needs for spaces that support academic excellence and the student experience, supersede holding on to this piece of our past.” reports that Laurentian’s board of governors decided to sell the property a year ago, but listing process complexities and necessary repairs delayed the process of listing the home. Funds from the home’s sale will be used to invest in the university’s sustainability.
