Laurentian University

Greater Sudbury, Canada
It is comprised of 4 federated universities, five faculties, several research institutes along with many supporting administrative departments, each managed individually. The University is a regional entity with campuses and facilities in Greater Sudbury and Barrie. It is one of the largest employers in the Greater Sudbury area and procures millions in goods and services annually, of which a large part is from businesses located in Greater Sudbury or Barrie. Through local purchasing the University fosters economic growth in its host communities.



  • In November 1960 the Board of Governors and Senate adopted blue and gold as the Laurentian team colours, rejecting the student preference for copper-red and nickel-grey, a more regionally appropriate but less eye-appealing choice.
