Learning also happens outside the classroom!


What’s your goal when you enter university? To get an education, of course! But the experience can also be so much more. The learning at Carleton University happens both inside and outside of the classroom. With our innovative programs, dedicated professors, and top-notch facilities, we know we’re offering you the most inside the classroom. We also know that getting involved outside will help propel your university experience to the next level. Getting involved means opportunities that help you gain valuable skills in networking, maintaining work-life balance, cultural awareness, and engaging with the diverse world around you - helping launch you in a successful career and a balanced life in the future.

So don’t let your university experience stop when class ends. Visit our state-of-the art athletic facilities for a run on the indoor track, swim in the pool, or join a friendly game of soccer. Peruse our more than 200 clubs that revolve around interests in culture, food, sport, music, faith and academics. Build life-long friendships through the social activities happening in your residence building or the cultural activities offered by our International Student Services Office. Slip your transit pass in your pocket and explore the beautiful city of Ottawa, Canada’s capital city. Start building your resumé through field placements, internships, or with a paid co-operative education (‘Co-op’) work experience in your field of study. Take advantage of our academic and career services on campus. See what current Carleton students have to say about all their varied experiences on our student blogs.
