Visitor's guide

Memorial is not just a great place to work and study - it's an exciting place to visit.

Founded in 1925 as a memorial to Newfoundland’s war dead, Memorial University College was elevated to degree-granting status in 1949 as Memorial University of Newfoundland. With about 19,000 students, today Memorial provides excellent undergraduate, graduate and professional programs across a wide range of disciplines. With locations in St. John’s and Corner Brook in Newfoundland, Happy Valley-Goose Bay in Labrador, and Harlow in England, Memorial is committed to experiential learning.

Outstanding research and scholarship, extraordinary teaching and learning, and a focus on public engagement are the university’s hallmarks. Many teaching and research activities reflect our mid-North Atlantic locations; these unique settings and our cultural heritage have led to the creation of highly-regarded academic programs and specialized facilities in areas such as business, music, linguistics, folklore and human genetics, as well as earth sciences, cold-ocean engineering, rural health care and archaeology.

Memorial has four campuses, each with its own flavour and charm. Many of the university's facilities and services are open to the community.

The province’s capital city, St. John’s, is home to the St. John’s campus which offers a full range of academic programs in a modern, urban setting.

Also located in St. John’s is the Marine Institute, Canada’s leading centre of fisheries and marine training and one of the largest marine educational facilities in the world.

Grenfell Campus, located in Corner Brook on the scenic west coast of the island, is a liberal arts and science campus specializing in environmental and fine arts programs.

Finally, our Harlow Campus in Old Harlow, Essex, UK serves as a gateway for students wishing to study internationally.
