Finding Your Way Around Campus

Welcome sign on Carleton campus

Bordered by the Rideau Canal, the Rideau River and lush parkland, Carleton’s 62-hectare campus is a self-contained community just minutes away from Parliament Hill and downtown Ottawa. Our campus is connected by more than five kilometres of underground tunnels that conveniently link the university’s buildings and make it a gold standard in accessibility.

In addition to watching a video tour or virtual experience, you can download a helpful campus map.

Carleton University acknowledges and respects the Algonquin people, traditional custodians of the land on which the Carleton University campus is situated.
