Huron University College is completely unique to post-secondary institutions in Canada. With the aim to redefine Liberal Arts education, Huron is creating a university experience unlike any other that prioritizes ethical leadership and community engagement, as much as the pursuit of academic achievement. Huron provides elite, yet accessible, education, because every student with the passion and work ethic to positively change our world deserves to access the knowledge to understand it and the skills to shape it. Huron’s mission is to develop Leaders with Heart from all backgrounds and foster a vibrant and inclusive community. The school is proud of more than 9,000 alumni who have gained significant recognition for contributing to virtually every aspect of society.
As the founding college of Western University, since 1863, Huron has remained strategically small to best serve the needs of its students. The university’s affiliation with Western’s main campus means students can access a broad range of clubs and activities, while benefitting from Huron’s strong professor-to-student ratio. Huron prepares students to be engaged citizens who transform the sectors they work within. Their commitment to providing the best-possible Liberal Arts education means students have many unique opportunities to enrich their learning experiences. Huron is the first university in Ontario to partner with Harvard Business School’s HBX program. The university also supports many students to engage in international exchange programs and internships and to conduct graduate-level research through its Centre for Undergraduate Research.
Ever since 1843 our approach to education can be summed up in one word: engagement. With approximately 2,400 students we offer a learning environment where classes are intimate and students receive personalized attention from their professors. We are an English university in a French community so while students do not need to know a word of French, our environment offers the ability to learn, enhance or become fully bilingual in English and French.
Our students really like being able to specialize in their field, while still having flexibility to choose courses from other disciplines. We actually encourage them to explore multiple interests. Outside of class, students get very involved in campus life which creates a wonderful sense of community. A plethora of activities and facilities exist both on campus and in the general area. A full recreation and athletics facility featuring three full gymnasiums, a 25m swimming pool, combatives and dance rooms, cardio and weight equipment, ice hockey rink, seven football/soccer/rugby pitches, over 100 kilometres of hiking and running trails, plus two theatres, art gallery, on campus pub, convenience store, bookstore, cafes, two libraries, music recital hall, and much more. And to top it all off, we have a beautiful campus located in one of the most beautiful regions of the country with many outdoor activities available in the area including eight ski hills within two hours - a fantastic place to live and study. Be Adventurous. Be Purple. BU.
