Western University has announced changes to its housing and health and wellness spaces. The university will be expanding its first-year residence capacity by converting parts of Bayfield Hall to first-year residences. The renovations, which will begin in July, will add 207 beds to Western’s residence system and allow Western to fulfill its guarantee of giving every first-year student the option of living in residence. The institution has also moved Western Health and Wellness to Thames Hall. The move will bring all of Western’s health services, including mental health supports and medical care, under one roof and shorten wait times. The new space is designed to be calm and inviting with dedicated areas for reflection and gathering. Western (1)| Western (2) Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
