About Algoma University

Algoma University is a small, undergraduate institution in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. Our beautiful campus is situated at the heart of the Great Lakes, with St. Mary’s River separating us from USA. Established in 1964, and granted our charter in 2008, Algoma University has been offering undergraduate studies to students for almost 50 years.

Algoma University is a small university where you’ll get a big education. With over 30 academic programs in a diverse range of fields, you can choose to be broad-based, or to specialize, depending on where your ambitions lie. You will receive an individualized and personalized education, and will benefit from one-on-one time with our knowledgeable and caring faculty and staff. And, as our students will tell you, the relationships you develop with faculty and staff will help you to find a job, gain access to graduate programs, or whatever else you decide to do beyond your time here.

Our students also benefit from learning in a cross-cultural and diverse community.  We embrace our special mission to cultivate cross-cultural learning between Aboriginal communities and other groups. We live, learn, study, and work together.

We are growing, but not too big, and not too fast. We are committed to maintaining our competitive advantage: that is our personal attention to you, and our commitment to your success. We think those are the cornerstones of a positive university experience.

Campus information

Algoma University is located in Northern Ontario in the heart of Sault Ste. Marie (pronounced “Soo Saint Marie”), a city of 75,000 people. “The Soo”, as we locals call it, has all the amenities of a big city – shopping, entertainment, sports teams, festivals, and cultural activities – but without any of the hassle.


Whether living in our dormitories or in our townhouses, all of Algoma University’s residence options feature a private, single room. A single room provides students with the best learning and study environment.  You’ll be able to set your own study schedule and develop your own routine without having to worry about interfering with someone else’s. 

But rest assured, having a single room doesn’t mean you’ll be alone. There are countless opportunities to get involved or hang out with fellow residents. By living on residence you’ll be part of our residence family – a tight-knit group of students all learning to live on their own together. You’ll have access to special events like our annual September fair, which features a dunk tank, as well as dinners, banquets, and so much more. Plus, you might just get a throw a pie in the face of your Residence Don – who doesn’t want to do that?!

Our residences are centrally located on our campus and are within a two-minute walk to classes, computer labs, the George Leach Centre, the Speakeasy, cafeteria, and major transit routes. All feature high-speed wireless Internet, local phone services, and include weekly cleaning services in all bathrooms and common areas – what’s not to like about that?! Dorms are wheelchair accessible and staffed with Residence Advisors and Residence Dons, and include evening and overnight security staff and 24-hour video surveillance – you’ll never have to worry about your safety and security.
