SUGAR GROVE – Waubonsee Community College has reached an agreement to sell its former downtown Aurora campus buildings, according to a news release issued Thursday by the school.

Waubonsee moved its downtown Aurora operations in June 2011 to a new site at 18 S. River St., Aurora.

Waubonsee’s main campus is on Route 47 in Sugar Grove.
