About Laurentian University

Founded in 1960 and located in the traditional territory of the Atikameksheng Anishinabek, our campus is nestled among 5 freshwater lakes in the heart of the city, surrounded by lush green spaces. You can enjoy pristine nature from every vantage point on campus.

Boasting our own private beach, our natural setting is minutes from the downtown core and comprises more than 765 acres of land, owned by the University, that adjoin the vast Lake Laurentian Conservation Area. Nature is at the core of the university’s identity, and learning here, in this awe-inspiring natural environment, is a true pleasure for the senses.

We also benefit from the amenities of Sudbury – a regional municipality with a population of 160,000. The city is the Northeastern Ontario regional centre for postsecondary education, health care, tourism and business.
