(WINDSOR, ON) – Lancers Athletics will be providing a preview of the proposed $73 million Lancer Sport and Recreation Centre tomorrow at the CAW Students Centre on the main campus. The new complex will feature a new basketball stadium with seating for 2,500, fitness facility, cricket pitch, soccer fields, and eight lane swimming pool.

As well, there will be a perimeter running trail, an outdoor artificial turf field, beach volleyball, basketball and ball hockey courts, several multipurpose areas and student club rooms, and a social hub. The fitness area will triple in size from the current offerings.

UWindsor is committed to paying 25 per cent of the construction cost of the project and 100 per cent of the on-going operational costs, estimated to be $1 million annually.

Students are currently paying a capital fee of $28.38 per semester, increasing for inflation each year, and ending in 2029.
