The Carleton Campus
Our students tell us that one of the things they like most about Carleton is the University’s friendly, caring atmosphere. You will find that our teaching and support staff is accessible and genuinely interested in helping you succeed.
Carleton is clean and safe. Our beautiful 62-hectare campus is just 15 minutes from the centre of the city. An extensive tunnel system links all buildings on campus, making Carleton one of the most accessible universities in the country. Just minutes away from campus are a host of unique research and study resources including the National Archives, the National Research Council, the National Arts Centre, the National Gallery, the Museum of Civilization and the Museum of Science and Technology are but a few examples.
Our students come from every province and territory in Canada and from over 147 countries around the world. Why do they choose Carleton? Our worldwide reputation for quality programs is usually an important factor in their decision.
