About Dawson College

Dawson College was the first anglophone college in the CEGEP network when it was founded in 1968 and is today one of the largest. With five pre-university programs and 21 career/technical programs, Dawson offers a personal approach to college education despite its size, giving students the opportunity to bond within smaller working groups and with their teachers.

Teaching and learning spaces at Dawson are being transformed, moving away from the traditional classroom environment of chairs, tables, black or white boards and incorporating active classrooms, interactive technology and academic and para-academic activities that take students out of classrooms and labs altogether.

Dawson’s 10,000 students and 1,000 employees can trace their roots to more than 70 cultures and languages. This diversity enriches the lives of every member of this multicultural community within a welcoming and stimulating environment.

The staff of Campus Life and Leadership provides advice and support to students, and designs activities that enrich academic and extracurricular life at Dawson College. The philosophy of Campus Life and Leadership is to focus on student development beyond the classroom through activities that offer educational, recreational and leadership opportunities. Among the activities coordinated by Campus Life and Leadership are student leadership, awareness and educational opportunities, campus entertainment, academic and computer support, student exhibitions and special events.

The college has one of the largest athletics programs in Canada. With 15 intercollegiate and competitive teams, there are approximately 400 athletes who call themselves ‘Blues’. The on-campus facilities are among the best in Quebec, offering a wide variety of recreational programs. Be healthy, be proud.

Dawson College is located at the western tip of downtown Montreal and is the only CEGEP linked directly to a Métro station (Atwater). The building is a heritage site that dates back to 1908 when it was the Mother House of the Congrégation-de-Notre-Dame, a religious order of teaching sisters. In 1988, Dawson opened its doors in the newly renovated building after nearly 20 years spread out over some 12 different locations in downtown Montreal.
