SMALL UNIVERSITY. BIG EDUCATION.

Student Life

  • It's about more than books. Student Life

    What happens outside the classroom is a huge part of the Algoma experience. Life at Algoma means being part of a community that encourages personal growth, as well as a lot of fun.

  • Get your groove on.

    Day or night, The Speak Easy is Algoma’s hub for student dining and entertainment. You’ll enjoy activities ranging from karaoke and acoustic jam nights to all-age pub nights and live bands.

  • Thunderbird pride is alive and well. Varsity sports

    We may be the smallest university in the province, but that doesn't mean we're not big on athletics. We have a variety of men's and women's varsity teams for you to watch, play, or get involved with.

  • Develop lasting relationships. Develop lasting relationships.

    Walk across campus, join a new club, or hang out at the GLC – you’re bound to see friendly, familiar faces. When you’re miles away from home, it’s nice to know you’ve got another family you can count on.

  • There's always something to do. Always something to do.

    Ready to make new friends? There are many on- and off-campus events and trips planned throughout the year. We've got ski trips, international dinners, lectures, and movie nights to keep you busy…when you're not studying, of course.

An Experience of a Lifetime

Farrukh Asif Khan never owned a jacket before she came to Algoma – it was never cold enough for one in her hometown. How times have changed.

A Family Tradition

Though it may be one of the smaller universities around, Algoma U has a powerful magnetic draw that’s tough to replicate. Just ask Steven Groulx.
