Western University

The University of Western Ontario, commonly shortened to Western University and Western, was founded in 1878 and is now a long-established academic community. The campus is considered one of the most picturesque campuses across North America and showcases gothic architecture and ivy-covered buildings that are framed by numerous scenic locations to relax, study and socialize. Western is one of Canada’s Top 10 Research-intensive universities and is ranked among the top 1% of universities world-wide.
