Brock University

Founded 1964 | St. Catharines, ON

Brock University looks to the future, offering a dynamic learning environment. In recent years, the school has expanded its research and increased graduate offerings. World-class infrastructure includes the Cairns’ Family Health and Bioscience Research Complex and the Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts. Almost 600 faculty teach more than 150 undergraduate and graduate programs across seven faculties in a culture that promotes experiential learning and community outreach.

The school draws international students from 100 countries. Brock’s co-op program is huge: 1,300 to 1,500 students complete a work term annually with more than 300 industry partners in the Niagara region and beyond. “Known for its student experience, teaching and research excellence, experiential education opportunities, renowned student supports and an ongoing commitment to equity, diversity and inclusion, Brock is a place of possibility, where breakthroughs, big and small, happen every day,” says president Lesley Rigg.

The school is located in a UNESCO biosphere reserve in the scenic Niagara region. The Zone, the school’s fitness and recreation centre, has undergone a massive expansion that tripled its size. The new 308-bed Residence 8, opened in 2021, features single rooms and community lounges on each floor. Meanwhile, expansion is underway on a facility to house the new Brock-Niagara Validation, Prototyping and Manufacturing Institute, a collaborative hub connecting Brock with industry partners.
