St. Joseph's Convent was the original location of a Lindsay campus back in 1967.

It is currently home to the School of Environmental and Natural Resource Sciences. This campus focuses on environmental and natural resource education (earth resources, fish and wildlife, GIS, etc.), and was expanded with a new environmental technology wing in 2004.
