Campus & community

Our community is part of the Golden Horseshoe – a mix of vibrant urban living and breathtaking natural wonders – located in the heart of southern Ontario.

Hamilton is home to more than half a million people, situated centrally – less than one hour’s drive from Toronto, Niagara Falls, Kitchener-Waterloo, and the United States border. Hamilton has a lively arts and cultural scene, featuring the best in music, arts and food.

Nature abounds within the city limits and beyond! We are known as the City of Waterfalls, with over 100 within the city’s boundaries. Both natural and developed trails – through forests, across the Niagara escarpment and along the shores of Lake Ontario – allow you to explore your new home throughout the four seasons.
