Three floors dedicated to your wellness!
Welcome to the Student Wellness Centre (SWC) at Fanshawe College in London, Ontario!
The SWC doors opened on May 8, 2017, the result of more than seven years of research, planning, designing and construction. Canadian athlete and four-time Olympic rower Silken Laumann help to celebrate its grand opening in September 2017 as part of the College’s 50th anniversary year. The dream to build this facility was put into motion by the Fanshawe Student Union ‘s generous contribution of more than $27 million toward the project, the largest contribution from students the Ontario college sector had ever seen. The ongoing operation of the centre continues to be mostly funded by student money.
