Univeristy of Windsor

For all the students heading back to school next week, here’s a look back at the beginnings of the University of Windsor.

Campus looked pretty bare back in ’54.

University Centre, built in 1962, is at the heart of the University of Windsor campus, an institution serving higher education since 1857.

The main entrance of the Pure and Applied Sciences building at the University of Windsor, Canada’s most southerly university.

At Windsor, Ontario, on the shore of the Detroit River, the University of Windsor has earned recognition as an international institution of repute. Windsor Hall, administration tower, was completed in 1965.

The top photo dates to 1954, while all four postcards date to the late 1960’s.
