International Centre

Brock University is located in the beautiful Niagara region in the city of St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada. The Brock campus overlooks the city from atop the Niagara Escarpment. On a clear day, you can easily view the Toronto skyline from campus.

Brock celebrates the academic strengths and cultural diversity that students bring to campus. Visit the International Centre to join weekly cultural trips and activities, and for any assistance you may need. We provide support at pre-departure, on-arrival and throughout your stay.

Brock is a mid-sized school with more than 19,000 students and 600 faculty. About 10 per cent of our students are from outside Canada, representing more than 100 countries. Here you’ll enjoy all the benefits of a modern university in a safe, communityminded city with lovely natural surroundings.

The International Centre offers sunny, atriumstyle spaces for you to study and work on group projects. There is an Asian-style café on site, a comfortable student lounge with microwaves, hot water-on-demand, and a big screen with LCD projector. Movie and World Cup screenings are regular events!
