Lakehead needs campus location secured by September

July 25, 2007

Lakehead University is set to announce the site of its permanent Orillia campus within the next month.  Already having waited seven months for a decision by the Ontario government regarding the use of Huronia Regional Centre (HRC) property on Lake Simcoe, Lakehead is prepared to develop another site in order to open a permanent Orillia campus for the 2009-2010 school year.  Spending $2.25 million on an interim site with a capacity for 500 students, Lakehead anticipates 1000 students by the time the permanent site is built, with plans to eventually grow the facility to accommodate 5,000 students.
