Hamilton Campus

Last fall, Brock University and the City of Burlington signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the goal of working together to find a new home for the academic programming currently offered at the Hamilton Campus.

As that process moves forward, on Wednesday, June 23, the Halton District School Board (HDSB) announced that it has declared Robert Bateman High School on New Street in Burlington surplus to its needs.

As part of a provincially regulated process, the HDSB may offer to sell or lease the property to a list of public sector bodies. As one of the eligible bodies, the City of Burlington is taking the important next step of formally submitting an expression of interest to purchase the Robert Bateman site.

The high school site aligns with Burlington’s goal to attract post-secondary education to the city, and as such, its expression of interest will include the exploration of a partnership with Brock University to offer post-secondary programming on the site.

In addition to exploring a relationship with Brock, Burlington also plans to partner with other institutions, ensuring there is an adaptive reuse strategy for the site. This includes the Burlington Library relocating its Appleby Line branch to this location to develop a hub for learning and education.
