Campus Life

U de M has three campuses located in New Brunswick’s francophone regions: Edmundston, Shippagan, and Moncton. With six libraries located on these three campuses, U de M demonstrates its passion for providing an exceptional academic experience by ensuring that students have easy access to a variety of research materials and resources.

Every year, U de M hosts an International Week aimed at exposing students to the diversity of cultures present on campus, in Canada, and around the world. International Week hosts many events, including dinners and flag ceremonies.

U de M’s main campus is located in Moncton, New Brunswick. Moncton lies at the geographical center of the Maritimes, and has been dubbed “Hub City” because of its history as a land and transportation hub for the Maritimes. Moncton is also home to Magnetic Hill, where visitors can view a “gravity hill” optical illusion where the local topography creates the perception that you are going uphill when you are actually going downhill.

Moncton is also home to a variety of theatres, museums, and festivals, as well as the headquarters of the Canadian Poetry Association.
