The University of New Brunswick (UNB) is Canada’s oldest English-language university, and New Brunswick’s only national comprehensive university. Founded in 1785, the multi-campus institution has a rich history as well as a dynamic focus on innovation, experiential learning and entrepreneurship.  UNB has more than 9,500 students from nearly 75 countries while several thousand more take UNB courses online and at partner institutions around the world.

The University of New Brunswick is the right-sized university. We’re large enough to offer a wide range of programs and services, but small enough to offer students the support they need to discover and realize their potential.

With campuses in Fredericton and Saint John, UNB offers more than 75 programs with a variety of courses to choose from. UNB is responsible for more than 70 per cent of all publicly funded research in New Brunswick and is a leader of innovation. As Canada’s oldest English-speaking university, it is home to many firsts: the first engineering and forestry programs, the first computer science faculty and the first accelerated degree in interdisciplinary leadership. As the world changes, UNB is responding to shifts in our society, providing courses through alternative delivery methods to ensure our community remains safe while receiving an excellent education.

Our November 2022 President's newsletter is now available!

We're taking the time to reflect and appreciate our university-wide accomplishments and dedication displayed this academic year. The world needs more UNB!


Thank you to @mccainglobal for hosting our computer science students at their Global Technology Centre in Florenceville last week! Students connected with IT leadership at McCain and discussed emerging trends and opportunities at their global headquarters right here in NB!

The Fredericton Downtown Community Health Centre (FDCHC) provides unique experiential learning opportunities in a clinical setting for our nursing students that can’t be recreated in a classroom or laboratory setting.
