Visit our campus

One of the best ways to get a feel for a university is to visit its campus. So hop in a car, take a train, or hike up the Niagara escarpment and let us roll out the red carpet just for you!

Campus tours are available regularly from Monday to Friday at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., and on select weekend dates. All tours are led by current Brock students, and you will visit many areas of interest on campus along the way such as classrooms, residences, recreational areas, student meeting spaces, and much more.
