THUNDER BAY CAMPUS Established in 1965, the Thunder Bay campus is home to over 7,500 students studying a comprehensive array of programs. From Arts and Sciences to professional programs such as Business, Education, Engineering, Law, and Nursing, Lakehead is well known for providing a quality, student-centred education. Situated in the heart of Thunder Bay, the best of both nature and big city amenities are only minutes away from campus. Fields and green space surround our campus and all buildings are conveniently located together in one location creating a true campus feel. Many of the University’s buildings are grouped around Lake Tamblyn and the residence complexes hug the banks of the McIntyre River. Underground tunnels connect many of the main, centralized buildings on campus, allowing for easy access between classes and facilities. Paved trails surround the campus, making it the perfect place to take in the beauty of the area whether you are hiking, jogging, rollerblading, biking, or crosscountry skiing!

ORILLIA CAMPUS In 2006, the Lakehead experience expanded to Central Ontario’s beautiful cottage country in Orillia. The campus has increased to over 1,500 students and now operates out of two locations. In 2010, our brand new state-of-the-art campus opened, as the first LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) standard campus in North America. The Academic Building is environmentally friendly in every way possible with a green roofing system, geothermal energy source, and water collection ponds. As a student at the Orillia campus, you will benefit from the full Lakehead experience. Walking down the halls, you will know your classmates and become part of something truly different. You will play an important role in shaping student life at the Orillia campus.

ACCESS PROGRAMS

In addition to our regular entry pathways for admission, Lakehead University offers a number of special access opportunities that allow students who may not meet the regular admission requirements, but who demonstrate potential for success, to start university. These programs often feature specialized supports and programming to help students make the transition to university and develop skills to ensure their academic success.

ABORIGINAL ACCESS PROGRAMS

Apply Directly At Lakehead University, we are committed to promoting opportunities through education for people of Aboriginal ancestry. Native Access Program (NAP) The Native Access program is a nine-month full-time preparatory program designed to provide you with the skills and academic preparation necessary for the successful completion of a university degree. You will study in a culturally sensitive and friendly environment while you take courses in subject areas such as English, Math, Science, Indigenous Learning, and University Transitions. Upon successful completion of the Native Access Program, you may choose to pursue an undergraduate degree at Lakehead University. Native Nurses Entry Program (NNEP) The Native Nurses Entry Program is a nine-month preparation program designed to increase opportunities for Aboriginal people to gain access to, and be successful in the Bachelor of Science in Nursing Porgram. The program consists of two semesters as well as a two-week field placement. Upon successful completion, students enter first year of the Bachelor of Science in Nursing program.

GATEWAY

No Application, Automatically Considered The Gateway program offers students the opportunity to pursue university studies while providing enriched supports and programming. Gateway is geared towards students who successfully meet their academic program course prerequisites, but whose academic average does not represent their academic potential. No application is necessary; students will automatically be considered for admission under Gateway as part of the regular admission assessment process.

ACADEMIC ENGLISH PROGRAM (AEP)

No Application, Automatically Considered Lakehead University’s Academic English Program (AEP) is an intensive English language program designed to improve international students’ English language proficiency.
