A great way to visit Algoma University is with your school. Throughout the school year, we host schools from the Algoma region, who come and take part in a variety of activities on campus. Many also come to campus to use our facilities and services, like our athletics complex and our library. Contact info@algomau.ca to find out if your school can come for a visit or is scheduled to make an appearance in the future.
