The Laurentian University Federation
Four federated institutions, one vibrant university!
The establishment of Laurentian University in 1960 as a degree-granting institution under the auspices of the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities was preceded by more than a half-century by the founding of College Sacré-Coeur in 1913 by Jesuit Fathers. It was the first and for many years the only institution of higher learning in northern Ontario, and it would later adopt the name of University of Sudbury in 1957.
While each individual university contributes unique academic programs, distinct learning and residential accommodations, and other diverse attributes to Laurentian’s offerings, students at University of Sudbury, Thorneloe and Huntington are all Laurentian students. They share classrooms, services, activities and are an integral part of the Laurentian community. The Laurentian student card provides access to the university’s full spectrum of student amenities – from the Active Living Centre and the library, to the various support services.
Laurentian’s federated universities add character and flexible options for students looking for specific programming or courses, a unique learning environment, or distinct residential style. The best way to find the perfect fit is to arrange a tour of the facilities.
