Mohawk to close Brantford Elgin Street campus

July 5, 2011

Mohawk College’s Elgin Street Campus in Brantford will close within the next few years because of consistently low student satisfaction scores, and insufficient services available in the campus’s immediate area to meet students’ needs. Due to a lack of funding from all three levels of government, the initial plan of relocating the campus to the downtown area is no longer an option, said Jay Robb, Mohawk's director of communications. A timeline for the closure has not yet been established, however students will not be moved until a comparable facility is built at Mohawk’s Fennel campus. (Odeon, another of Mohawk’s Brantford campuses, will remain open.) Brant News
