Claude Lajeunesse will not be in Bishop Court when he takes up his duties as President next week. Instead, he will move with his staff into the eighth floor of the Guy Metro Building on de Maisonneuve Blvd.

Bishop Court, the charming 100-year-old former luxury apartment building where Concordia’s administrators have long been based, has no elevators.
