With the demolition of an iconic St.FX building starting yesterday, eyes are already focused on the future of the University. Parts of Nicholson Hall were torn down yesterday, as the development of the new Mulroney Hall begins.
Former St.FX student, professor and now MLA, Randy Delorey has mixed emotions when reflecting on his time at St.FX. Overall, Delorey says he is excited to see what the future holds for the campus:
Mulroney Hall is slated to be completed in December, 2018 or early 2019. The hall will replace the dated Nicholson Hall with a modern learning space on the upper campus, a 300-person auditorium, an open atrium, a new centre for teaching and learning, labs and office spaces.

With Nicholson Hall due to be torn down this summer, St. FX University is working to make up for the lost classroom space.  Nicholson, which housed 21 classrooms,  will be dismantled to make way for construction of Mulroney Hall.  The University’s Vice President of Finance, Andrew Beckett says it has secured other locations on or near campus.
Beckett says other spaces to be used include the conference rooms at the Keating Centre.  He says it’s also exploring better utilization of classrooms at the Schwartz School of Business and the Coady Institute.  A formal plan will be announced soon.
Mulroney Hall is scheduled to completed in December, 2018; but Beckett says it could early in 2019 before it’s finished.
