Heritage Regina’s College Avenue Campus Salvage Sale

Heritage Regina’s College Avenue Campus Salvage Sale

Respecting and Recycling Our Heritage

The College Avenue Campus (CAC) has a rich history in Regina. Tracing the University of Regina’s roots back to College Avenue, these heritage buildings are an early and exceptional example of Collegiate Gothic architecture in our community.

After more than 100 years of use, these historical buildings were deteriorating and their lack of accessibility made it difficult for all students to access programming. To preserve this historic gem, in 2011, the University of Regina undertook the College Avenue Campus Renewal Project.  All of the work undertaken has been focused on preserving the historic features of the College Building. Where possible, historical items have been salvaged and reused within the revitalized College Building and its new additions.

Wanting to ensure that materials that could not be repurposed did not end up wasted, the University and Heritage Regina have worked together to respectfully recycle and redistribute historical items within the community.

As a result of these efforts, Heritage Regina will be holding an online auction of items such as brick, wood, tile, heritage door knobs, railings and radiators from CAC. Many of these materials date back to the original construction of CAC. Each item has been photographed and catalogued by McDougall Auctions. Proceeds of the sale will go to Heritage Regina education programs including their lecture series and heritage walking tours.
