Our Story

The University of Guelph-Humber was the first in Ontario to offer an opportunity to earn both a university honours degree and diploma in four years of full-time study in one location when UofGH opened its doors in 2002.

Years later, what continues to make UofGH unique is the integration of theory and workplace experience in all of our programs.

A collaboration between the University of Guelph and Humber College Institute of Technology & Advanced Learning, UofGH was founded on the principle of integrating experiential learning opportunities into the traditional academic curriculum.

Drawing from the expertise and knowledge of those renowned founding institutions, UofGH offers students focused programs, a close-knit community with small class sizes, the chance to conduct undergraduate research, and opportunities to gain significant workplace experience.

As a result of the University of Guelph-Humber’s focus on internationalization and global partnerships, our students are also offered the opportunity to broaden their horizons through Study Abroad, to benefit from the insights of leading academic minds through our visiting professor program, and to further pursue their educational goals globally by utilizing the international exchange agreements UofGH has forged with universities around the world.
