Algoma University's campus lies in the heart of historic downtown Brampton. Within steps away, the downtown offers access to city and regional transit, and is home to over 1500 businesses and services. Enjoy great restaurants, shops, arts, entertainment, parks and culture. Garden Square, located directly beside Algoma U's Brampton campus, offers free entertainment for all ages throughout the year including many events and festivals. Culture Days, Winter Lights Weekend, Festival of Liberty Diversity, and the World of Jazz Festival to name just a few are scheduled at this vibrant city hub.
This is an exciting period for both the City of Brampton and for Algoma University as we work in partnership, along with other stakeholders, to expand post-secondary options for the citizens of Brampton and our International community.
To respond to the growing needs of the City of Brampton, Algoma University is proposing to expand its academic offerings by creating a Centre for Social, Cultural & Economic Innovation in the heart of downtown Brampton. By Fall 2020, in addition to its School of Business & Economics, Algoma University will offer programs, degrees and certificates in Computer Science, Psychology, and Community Economic and Social Development, with additional, new programs to follow in 2023. Students at Algoma University's Centre for Social, Cultural & Economic Innovation will obtain an education that prepares them to make significant contributions to the Brampton community and beyond.
