Brock takes next steps in transitioning to Burlington campus

Brock University recently made strides in its plans to transition to more modern facilities in the Hamilton-Burlington-Oakville corridor.

As the University prepares to relocate its Hamilton Campus to Burlington, it will temporarily operate out of the former Lester B. Pearson High School site for the duration of the 2023-24 academic year. This was made possible through an agreement with the Halton District School Board.

The University will continue operating in Hamilton until the end of the 2022-23 academic year in April.

Brock has sold its Hamilton Campus site and as previously announced, will relocate to the future City of Burlington community hub on New Street — the former Robert Bateman High School site — once work on the property is completed.

The City of Burlington announced Nov. 1 that it has completed a purchase agreement and land exchange transaction with the Halton District School Board involving the former Robert Bateman property.

Work can now begin to ready the site for its new uses, including a Brock campus.

“With the support of our community partners, Brock University will continue to deliver the exceptional student experience it is known for throughout this transitionary period,” said Ken Chan, Brock’s Vice-President, Administration. “The modern facilities at the new campus will support the success of our students and provide exciting opportunities for Brock to contribute to the growth and vitality of the wider Halton community.”
