Combining innovative research, meaningful teaching and a deep sense of social responsibility

Located in Nova Scotia, Canada (Mi’kma’ki) with four campuses in Halifax and Truro, and satellite locations in Yarmouth and Saint John, New Brunswick, our broad range of academic programs attract and retain a diverse mix of incredible students, scholars, researchers and staff who work together with interdisciplinary perspective and a focus on service.

Our 13 academic Faculties expand understanding through teaching excellence and a drive for discovery that results in more than $190 million in research funding each year. As Atlantic Canada’s primary research-intensive university and a member of the U15 Group of Canadian Universities, our research and innovation includes world-leading researchers working in labs, studios and in the field.

Building on our legacy of groundbreaking research and outstanding scholarship, we are focused on providing a unique, interactive and collaborative environment that supports all our students, instructors, researchers and staff to achieve excellence.
