Providence acquires new property in downtown Winnipeg, expands campus


Providence University College has acquired a property in downtown Winnipeg, which will enable the institution to expand its downtown campus and meet the needs of its growing student body. The top floors of the building will be used as an affordable housing option geared toward international students, while the rest of the building will be renovated to create classrooms, office spaces, student lounges, a cafeteria, and a chapel. The building has been acquired from Booth University College, and will be leased back to Booth for a year to give it time to relocate. “We are excited to see Providence return to the city of Winnipeg where it all started 98 years ago,” says Providence President Kenton Anderson. “Our new 87,000 square foot downtown campus will serve as a tremendous complement to our longstanding home base in Otterburne.”
