Our Brantford Campus

Our Brantford Campus has quickly established itself as a dynamic institution that offers a unique combination of liberal arts and professional programs.

Our presence has transformed Brantford's downtown core into a thriving student community that is home to approximately 3,200 undergraduate and graduate students. The Brantford campus offers students the opportunity to bring classroom learning to life through community partnerships and volunteer placements.

Shaped by its location on the historic Grand River and proximity to the major industrial and consumer markets of North America, Brantford is a thriving community that is home to a number of global business operations, a healthy arts and culture scene, a world-class trail system, and several festivals and events. 

Transfer Opportunities

In addition to opportunities for high school applicants, our partnership with several Ontario colleges allows students to enter university studies with relevant transfer credits that shorten the length of time required to complete a degree.
