Welcome to Carleton University at Kanata

CU@Kanata is a purpose-built innovation space at Kanata North’s Hub350, a new ecosystem in Canada’s largest technology park where industry, finance and academic partners will collaborate and connect. The space features collaboration and meeting rooms, a café and garden terrace where faculty, staff and students can engage with more than 540 companies in the tech park, many of which already work with the university on research projects and/or hire co-op students.

Location

Located at 350 Legget Drive, and as part of a 12,000 square-foot technology centre serving as a gateway to world-class tech, finance, and academic research, CU@Kanata’s space will establish an important springboard to expand research and educational partnerships.

We are proud to have two Hub350 anchor tenants: the L-Spark software accelerator and the Kanata-North Business Association. Come and explore the amazing Kanata community and other Hub350 partner spaces.

“This unique facility fully leverages our proximity to this national innovation hub and further enhances Carleton’s reputation as a leader in high-tech research, teaching and innovation. In close contact with tech industry leaders, our students will cultivate an entrepreneurial mindset and benefit from hands-on learning towards leadership positions in this critical sector.”

Benoit Antoine-Bacon, President, Carleton University 

We are all about collaboration

The most unique collaboration on campus. CU@Kanata is bringing together multiple faculties, departments, and initiatives from across the University. We have created an ecosystem designed to capitalize on the opportunities and creative collisions between our stakeholders and the rest of the Hub350 community and Kanata North Business Association members.

Carleton will work with Kanata North businesses to develop new talent pipelines and opportunities for cross-disciplinary and work-integrated learning, and our student entrepreneurs will connect more easily with Kanata North businesses. Overall, Carleton seeks to help create a feedback loop where tech park strengths support university research and learning, which in turn bolsters private-sector success that feeds back into the university.
