Sheridan College was established in 1967. The "School of Graphic Design" was located in Brampton, Ontario until 1972, when it moved to the new campus in Oakville, Ontario. The school area at brampton was replaced by residential homes. The new Oakville location was still under construction when classes began, half way through the school year, in early 1973. The classes were held in a large open area under triangular skylights which allowed excellent lighting for the students. That building has become merged with many other structures as extensive expansion of the campus has occurred on an ongoing basis. The main courses taught that year were graphic design, fashion design, and animation.
