The main campus of Fleming College is the Sutherland Campus at Peterborough. Other campuses are located in Cobourg, Haliburton (Haliburton School of Art + Design), and Lindsay (the Frost Campus). The college’s modern architecture was designed by Ronald Thom.
The Dobbin farm was selected in 1967 for what would later be named the Sutherland Campus. In 1973 the first two phases of the site were opened, and in 1983 the site was named the Sutherland Campus in honour of the college’s first and founding president. The Sutherland Campus underwent expansion, including a new on-campus residence in 2002 and a new technology wing in 2003.
In 1967 a campus opened in a renovated textile mill on McDonnel Street, and in 1968 the site was named the Stewart W. Daniel Building. The McRae building was also constructed on this same property in 1976. The site was home to Fleming College’s trades programs but closed when the KTTC opened in 2014.
The Cobourg Campus opened in 1971. Today the campus offers Academic Upgrading and Continuing Education/Corporate Training courses.
In 1969, the Haliburton School of Fine Arts became part of Sir Sandford Fleming College. In 2004 the campus moved to a new location in Glebe Park on Head Lake in the Village of Haliburton, and today it is known as the Haliburton School of Art + Design. The campus offers full-time 14-week Art Certificates in Artist Blacksmithing, Drawing and Painting, Photo Arts, Digital Image Design, Sculpture, Ceramics, Glassblowing, Jewellery, and Fibre Arts. Students can combine these Certificate programs with a year of foundation credits to obtain a Visual and Creative Arts Diploma. Other programs offered at the campus include Expressive Arts, Sustainable Building Design and Construction, Continuing Education, and Academic Upgrading.
St. Joseph’s Convent was the original location of the college’s Lindsay campus in 1967. The college acquired its own facilities by 1973 and, in turn, this site was named the Frost Campus (in honour of Leslie Frost). Frost Campus is Fleming’s School of Environmental and Natural Resource Sciences, which focuses on environmental and natural resource education (including earth resources, fish and wildlife, and GIS). In 2004, the campus expanded with a new environmental technology wing.
