Safety — On and Off Campus
Brock’s beautiful campus is located in Niagara, a safe, fun, and vibrant region with beautiful natural surroundings. Brock University is close to the U.S. border, minutes from world-class tourism destinations and only an hour’s drive from the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). According to a 2016 Statistics Canada survey, the St. Catharines-Niagara Metropolitan area ranks among the safest in Canada with populations of more than 100,000 people.
On campus, our dedicated 24-hour security team protects our community, and provides addition support related to fraud, lost and found services, and a walk-safe program ensuring you’ll have peace of mind while you study.
Niagara offers safe and affordable accommodation on and off campus. Shared accommodation options are available for as low as $400 per month, which is less than half the cost of an average rental in Toronto.
The region offers a variety of housing options to choose from, including residence, individual apartments, or shared student housing. All of which are just minutes from Brock’s main campus.
