Brandon University traces its roots back to the late 19th century and the growth of higher education institutions in the City of Brandon. It began as a liberal arts college that offered some theological training and high school education, in addition to a school of music (since 1906). Brandon College was affiliated with McMaster University and the Baptist Union of Western Canada until 1938, when the Baptist Union decided it could no longer support the college due to financial reasons. In that year, Brandon College became a non-denominational corporation and joined with the University of Manitoba as an affiliated college. BU received its charter on June 5, 1967, when Princess Alexandra and the Honourable Angus Ogilvie visited Brandon. Programming in baccalaureate programs expanded and evolved rapidly after 1967 and has continued to present day. BU has since been recognized for its liberal arts and sciences programs, and has maintained a steady-growing student population from rural Manitoba and beyond. Its physical campus has grown building by building (the most recent which include the Clark Hall and the Original Building renovation in 1997, Health Studies building in 2003, Healthy Living Centre in 2013) to fill its campus west of downtown Brandon, and now requires a Campus Master Plan to best accommodate future growth and renew the existing campus condition.
Why Brandon University
- Class Sizes: Brandon University is convenient, clean and friendly. Classes are small and students enjoy many opportunities for close interaction with their professors. Brandon University is one of the most affordable Canadian universities and the City of Brandon enjoys a low cost-of-living compared to most major cities in North America.
- Office of International Activities: International students enhance Brandon University’s academic and multicultural environment. The campus has a distinct international flavour with students from five continents and more than 30 countries. The Office of International Activities is a home away from home for all international students. All international students should feel welcome here and can seek assistance with all types of concerns.
- Facilities: The Healthy Living Centre (HLC) is home to two large gymnasium spaces that provide a variety of sports and recreational opportunities. The main gym is home to Bobcat basketball and volleyball competitions, but when not in use for events the spaces are available for members to play their sport of choice. The HLC is also home to Brandon's only indoor walking and jogging track. Large windows provide panoramic views on the south and east side of the track. The fitness facility is one of the leading health and wellness centres in the Westman region.
