About Huron at Western University

Huron University College offers students an exceptional liberal arts experience. To study at Huron means to become part of one of the oldest university communities in Canada – but also one of the most forward-thinking, globally oriented and intellectually challenging. No matter what you choose to study at Huron, your degree will provide the knowledge and practical skills needed for the 21st century.

Huron is located next to, and is partnered with, Western University. Therefore, Huron students have access to all that Huron has to offer as well as all that is offered by Western. This partnership provides students with the best of both worlds – study in a small university community while enjoying all the benefits of one of the largest universities in Canada. Huron students will graduate with a degree from the University of Western Ontario.
