From the historical point of view the buildings are something to see and visit. Much to learn about the previous centuries and also interesting museums hosted by the university (like the museum of classical antiquities). As a learning center...that is another story.

The buildings are beautiful on campus and its nice for an afternoon walk, as cars cannot reach most points of the campus. As an institution, its rankings speak for itself they are somewhere in the middle for just about everything. In the four years I...More

Campus tours are well organized, they show you all aspects of the University experience (if you have somebody looking that way) and parking was free. Worth booking online so that everything is organized

This is one of Canada's bilingual universities. The buildings are a mix of great limestone traditional style and new modern buildings.

Whether you're a student or not, walking to and through the buildings is interesting, especially as it sits in the middle of Ottawa, and accessible to and from everywhere. GO.
