About University of Guelph

The University of Guelph is like no other university in Canada. Research-intensive and learner-centred, our campuses span urban hubs and rural communities. It is known for excellence in the arts and sciences, and for its commitment to developing exceptional thinkers and engaged citizens.

The University of Guelph, and everyone who studies here, explores here, teaches here and works here is committed to one simple purpose: to Improve Life. With more than 86 undergraduate majors, 49 minors, certificates, areas of emphasis, electives, and more than 100 ways to learn outside of the classroom, it offers an overwhelming undergraduate experience to students.

Beside this, it is consistently ranked as one of Canada's top comprehensive universities. The University of Guelph offers over 100 graduate programs at the Master's and Doctoral level. Students interested in graduate studies have access to programs ranging from the natural and physical sciences to engineering, social sciences, humanities, business, art, agriculture and veterinary science.

Established in 1970, The Arboretum is home to more than 2000 different taxa of woody plants, organized into collections that include a synoptic World of Trees collection, as well as a Native Trees of Ontario collection, and noteworthy collections of Oaks and Beeches, Maples, and Conifers. It encompasses 400 acres of plant collections, gardens, walking trails, natural woodlands, wetlands, and meadows. Adjacent to the university's main campus, The Arboretum is free to the public and open dawn until dusk.

With more than 200 clubs and organizations, it's easy to get involved in campus life at U of G, and it is one of the best ways to ease your transition to university life. Student clubs span cultural and religious interests, sports and academics, the arts and community service - there's something here for everyone. In addition, there are a number of student governments on campus and many groups that advocate for important social issues.

At U of G, it stresses the importance of balancing academics and athletics. Many of its student-athletes are excellent examples of this balance. They have 751 varsity athletes competing for the Gryphons.

Guelph’s main campus is located on 350 hectares of land in the heart of Guelph, Ontario. The self-contained campus is made up of charming traditional buildings and new facilities set amidst spectacularly landscaped grounds, phenomenal green space and the Arboretum creating an inspiring backdrop to complement your graduate experience.
