Carleton University boasts a central location in Ottawa, a capital city famed for its beautiful architecture, array of walking and biking trails, excellent shopping, diverse entertainment and scenic waterways. Thanks to the accessibility of the city students at Carleton never lack for opportunities to get out and explore. Our campus is also a dynamic hub of social activities, events and clubs providing plenty of opportunities for students to pursue their interests outside the classroom. Our residential program is another excellent way to make friends and provides support services for those transitioning into tertiary studies or adjusting to life in Canada.

We are particularly proud of the hands on learning we provide our students and the opportunities they have for industry placement thanks to the co-operative or work-study programs we offer. We have worked hard over the years to utilize our local industry ties within the business, research and government sectors of Ottawa to secure research and work placements for our students. These placements along with our focus on research have aided in inspiring and challenging our students to not only be successful, but to better themselves and aid in the development of our world.
