The new University of Windsor has its roots firmly planted in the traditions which nourished Assumption College when its doors were first opened by the Basilian Fathers on February 10, 1857. Affiliation with Western University, London, Ontario in 1919, changed Assumption's old curricula from a preparatory for admittance to seminaries into an integral part of the University's Faculty of Arts and Sciences. Co-education came to the campus with the arrival of Holy Names College in 1950. University status was achieved in 1953. Essex College three years later with its facilities in Memorial Science, the Annex, and the Essex College Engineering Building affiliated with the University College physically present in Dillon Hall. An Anglican Liberal Arts College, Canterbury College next joined the University in 1957. The addition of a new library and the University Centre marked the coming of age for Assumption University.
