Acadia University is one of Canada’s oldest and most respected universities. Founded in 1838, we are consistently rated the #1 primarily undergraduate university in Nova Scotia, and among the best in Canada.

Acadia can provide you with a special experience that's different from many larger universities. Our smaller size means smaller class sizes, more interaction with your professors, and opportunities for undergraduate research or co-op work terms. Instead of studying in a large city, you'll enjoy life in a friendly town and a walkable campus. Many of our students live in residence, and over 90% of students live within a mile from campus. This is a perfect place to pursue an education and grow as an individual.
