You’ll have endless opportunities for personal growth inside and outside the classroom. That’s our guarantee.

Sault Ste. Marie Campus
Algoma U’s main campus is located in Sault Ste. Marie, a city of 73,000 people in Northern Ontario. “The Soo”, as locals call it, has all the amenities of a big city – shopping, entertainment, sports teams, festivals, and cultural activities – but without the hassle of traffic.

We’re lucky to live in a city surrounded by the great outdoors. With Lake Superior and the St. Mary’s River literally just steps from our front door, there’s always something to do. Come take a closer look.
