Campus & Accommodation

Brock University is divided into two campuses. The main campus is in St. Catharines. The Brock Hamilton campus is the other. To better serve students and the larger community, Brock University is moving its Hamilton campus to Burlington. It is a full-service institution with opportunities for undergraduate, graduate, post-graduate, and doctoral study.


For international students, there are several different housing possibilities. Students have the option of living off-campus or in residences on campus. Nearly 2,500 students are housed on campus in seven residential buildings. Traditional, townhouses, and suites are the possible residential living options.

The 2,800 beds in the apartments provide a wonderful way to live in Niagara. In addition to on-campus accommodation, Niagara provides safe and inexpensive living options, including private flats and shared dorm rooms, that are close to Brock University's main campus. There are other alternatives for shared housing starting at $400 per month.

The various housing options for students include:

    The St. Catharine campus and the Hamilton campus are two distinctive campuses that makeup Brock University. The main campus is in St. Catharines. At Brock University, there are more than 120 student clubs where students can engage in a wide range of pursuits, including advocacy, community development, advocacy, and cultural pursuits. More than 1,582 study spaces are available in Brock University's James A. Gilbon Library, where students can access archive materials, articles, databases, journals, and much more.

    The Main Campus, East Campus, South Campus, and the Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts in the heart of St. Catharines make up the St. Catharines Campus.
    The Main Campus is home to the majority of academic buildings and facilities. On the other side of Glenridge, the East Campus, which is home to various academic buildings and retail establishments, is continuing to develop into a crucial component of the University.

    The Brock Business Park and freshly built student apartments are starting to change the campus context into a more comprehensive community just outside the East Campus boundaries. The fourth quadrant of the district is to the south, where the South Campus is largely undeveloped. The campus's natural surroundings and environmental elements work together to provide an inspiring environment and a solid foundation for the campus's external relationships.
