University of Windsor School of Creative Arts Doors Open Windsor

University of Windsor School of Creative Arts

In January 2018, this school opened in the historical downtown Armouries building. The Armouries was built originally to serve as the home of the Essex Fusiliers. It was renamed the Tilston Armouries after Acting Major F.A. Tilston, Second World War hero. The University of Windsor repurposed the Armouries through an extensive restoration that preserved the building’s original look and feel.
