Algoma University has three unique campuses: Sault Ste. Marie, Brampton, and Timmins, all in the province of Ontario! While the Sault Ste. Marie and Timmins campus offers a truly northern experience, the Brampton campus provides students with an urban experience. No matter where you study, each campus provides students with the academic background and knowledge required to succeed. You’ll have endless opportunities for personal growth inside and outside the classroom!
Established in 1965 as Algoma College, Algoma University was initially an affiliate of Laurentian University in Sudbury, Ontario. In 1967, Algoma College began offering classes in a portable building located at the Cambrian College site, now the Sault College site. Algoma College moved into its current location, the former Shingwauk Residential School building, in 1971.
In 2008, Algoma University was granted its charter and with the charter, achieved full autonomous university status as Ontario’s 19th University. Algoma University now offers over 30 academic programs in a diverse range of fields and through three faculties: Faculty of Sciences, Faculty of Social Sciences and Faculty of Humanities.
Algoma University celebrates values, personalities, and convictions that make us unique - because they also bring us together. That’s why we are heavily focused on campus culture, vibrant programming, research and innovation, Anishinaabe Inendamowin, and overall institutional excellence. This is a place where you’ll connect with the most diverse student body in Ontario. Where you’ll find your true self and more!
