Wilmington University to Begin Building New Campus

Wilmington University is moving forward with building its Concord Pike campus.

The News Journal of Wilmington reports that the New Castle County Council on Tuesday gave the university its final approvals for the new 41-acre campus in Brandywine Hundred.

The overall plan represents about a 10-year buildout and includes three buildings.

University attorney Wendie Stabler says construction on the first building will begin later this spring and they hope to begin hosting students by September 2018.

The campus will be equipped to handle up to 250 employees and 1,000 students.

The university's DuPont Highway campus near New Castle will remain the main campus and host top administrative offices. [[238427591, C]]
