Make the Bold Choice. Choose Brescia.
Brescia University College is a university experience like no other, described by our students as the transformative learning community for passionate, creative young women who seek to fulfill their personal aspirations and lead boldly in a rapidly changing world.

Student Centred
Brescia provides a unique learning experience to 1,550 full- and part-time students who enjoy small class sizes in which students make friends for life and learn from faculty members who know them by name.

Affiliated with the world-class Western University, Brescia sits boldly on 43 acres of beautiful green space right across the road from Western’s main campus. Students enjoy the advantages of being on a small campus while being part of a large student community; almost 34,000 students are registered at The University of Western Ontario and its affiliated colleges in London, Ontario. The city offers a thriving arts and culture scene, including top-billed concerts, live theatre and orchestra, museums, art galleries and heritage sites, and an abundance of shopping.

As a women’s university, Brescia offers unparalleled opportunities for female students to develop their strengths and fulfill their potential. Students may participate in a wealth of student leadership roles and learn from female leaders. The Brescia campus, however, is open to both male and female students registered across the Western community.

A Catholic college in the Ursuline tradition, we prepare our graduates to respond with wisdom, justice, and compassion to a changing world. For 90 years, Brescia has provided an environment where thousands of women have absorbed the values of volunteerism and compassion. Students from all faiths, backgrounds and traditions are welcome.
