Construction is underway on the $18 million expansion of the Aims Winsdor Campus. The project adds an academic building and a simulated city to the Public Safety Institute (PSI) training yard.

Construction began in March of 2022 on the Windsor Campus expansion project. The anticipated open date for the new facilities is Spring 2024. The Aims Windsor Campus opened in 2010 and has outgrown its space. It is currently home to the Automotive and Technology Center and the PSI. Aviation classes presently offered on the Greeley Campus will move to Windsor. The expansion will also allow for more general education courses on the Windsor Campus.

Project Update: March 2023

Construction on the Windsor Campus Expansion project began last March. You can view our photo galleries to see the evolution of the project with pictures from this month as well as photos from last October, June and March 2022. There are also architectural renderings for the project, so you can see what it will look like once it is completed.
