WCC puts Aurora campus up for sale

Move made in anticipation of new campus opening
Aurora—With the start of classes in Waubonsee Community College’s new downtown Aurora Campus just a year away, the college announced that its current campus, located at 5 E. Galena Boulevard, is now for sale.

Waubonsee has offered classes at a variety of locations in Aurora since 1967. In 1986, Waubonsee opened its current downtown Aurora Campus on Stolp Island. The 88,000-square-foot facility is a merger of two historic buildings—the Block & Kuhl Building and the Stanley Building. Waubonsee renovated the property for its academic use and retained the period detailing on the exterior of both buildings. The campus has been home to the college’s Workforce Development and Adult Education departments, as well as a number of credit programs.

Waubonsee’s new 132,000-square-foot downtown Aurora Campus will open for classes in August 2011. Located just across the Fox River from the current campus, the new campus will be comprehensive, offering a wider variety of courses and services so that students can start and finish an associate degree entirely in downtown Aurora. Information about the new campus can be found at waubonsee.edu/aurora.

All inquiries regarding the sale of the historic facility should be directed to U.S. Equities Realty Vice President Andy Norman at (312) 456-7065 or anorman@usequities.com. More information regarding the sale can also be found at 5EastGalena.com.
