Close-knit Community

With a student population of 4,900, and an average class size of 49, you can easily connect with classmates, professors and staff. Support is close at hand.

One Location

Many programs that allow students to earn a degree and a diploma in 4 years require students to attend the college and university portions of their studies on separate campuses, we do not. Our students earn their degree and diploma concurrently by studying in one facility with all university level courses.

How is this possible? Through our unique collaboration with the University of Guelph and Humber College Institute of Technology & Advanced Learning, we combine theoretical learning and practical education in all our programs. Drawing from the expertise and knowledge of both renowned institutions, our programs offer students both a degree from University of Guelph and a diploma from Humber. It’s an intensive learning experience that rewards highly motivated and goal-oriented students with two distinct credentials and the confidence to move forward with their career aspirations or graduate studies.

Students who choose us want:

  • A university education
  • To learn in a culturally diverse environment
  • To do, not just know
  • A meaningful career in their field
