Brock announces plan to pursue a modernized presence in the Hamilton-Burlington-Oakville region
Brock University, which has had a teaching presence in Hamilton for more than 30 years, is embarking on a search for more modernized facilities in the Hamilton-Burlington-Oakville (HBO) corridor.
The University will maintain operations at its current Hamilton campus until at least Spring 2021, but is exploring options and locations for contemporary, purpose-built accommodations that will meet the changing needs of learners.
The Hamilton campus, located on King Street East, will be listed for sale in the coming days. A 1960s high school that Brock acquired in 2000, it has been used primarily for teacher education. Through the years it has educated thousands of teachers for school districts in Hamilton-Wentworth, Halton, Grand Erie and Dufferin-Peel, amongst others.
