About University of New Brunswick Fredericton
The University of New Brunswick is the oldest English-Language University in the County. It was founded in 1785 by Loyalists fleeing the American Revolution. The university has two campuses, in Fredericton and in Saint John. The Fredericton campus sits atop a hill with a view of the Saint John River. The campus is well known for its beautiful fall foliage and unique architecture. There also two historic sites on the campus, designated by the National Historic Sites of Canada.
UNB is the seat of 11 Canada research chairs, with over 60 research centers and institutes. It is also particularly proud of its reputation as the most entrepreneurial university in Canada, awarded by Startup Canada. It has supported in launching more than 23 new startup companies.
Students on both campuses have access to UNB's world-class facilities, fitness classes and other outdoor activities. They can also participate in exchange programs with 89 university partners in 35 different countries.
The university is home to Canada's only NASA-designated Regional Planetary Imagine Facility, in which the public can visit and view mission documents and other cartographical information. It is also home to the only Archaeological program in Canada that offers field school experiences and hands-on application. The faculty of Computer Science in Fredericton was the first computer science faculty in Canada, and went on to develop the first software engineering degree program in Atlantic Canada.
