University of Warwick

University of Warwick presents plans for downtown Roseville graduate school

Downtown Roseville may get a new addition that could transform the properties along Dry Creek and in turn greatly enhance downtown revitalization.

At the November 16th Roseville City Council meeting, the University of Warwick outlined its plans to bring a permanent graduate school to downtown Roseville.  The first step would be the sale of Fire Station No. 1 at 401 Oak Street to Warwick.  At the meeting, the Council approved entering into negotiations with Warwick on the sale. 

“Between the University of Warwick and Sierra College, students will have a range of higher education options right in downtown Roseville. Both will draw students and professors, adding new energy and making downtown an even stronger destination into the evening hours as well. And it’s an ideal re-use of an existing building,” said City Manager Rob Jensen. “Warwick has been a strong partner and its plans support priorities that the Council has focused on for many years.”
