Laurentian University is nestled into a pristine 765-acre peninsula in Sudbury – less than four hours north of Toronto. We are one of the fastest growing universities in Canada in the past decade, now serving close to 9,500 students. Our main campus is in Sudbury, and we now offer a growing number of programs in Barrie to the 1,000 students studying on that campus. We have the highest post-graduation employment rates in Ontario after 6 months at 93% and 95% after two years. We receive high recognition for our enviable class sizes, having one of the lowest average class sizes in Canada. Our two home cities are similar in many important respects: they’re both vibrant, safe, affordable mid-sized cities with all the urban amenities, each with a true sense of community, and both located within the famous natural setting of the Muskoka region. Beyond the busy life on campus, you’ll find plenty to do and enjoy in both of our Laurentian host cities. Both communities have efficient and economical public transit and are relatively easy to navigate by car or on foot.
