The largest of four campuses is located in Newfoundland and Labrador’s capital city, St. John’s. On the St. John’s campus you’ll find state-of-the-art facilities and first-rate services. The Works offers you the provinces most comprehensive recreation package at a decent price; while at the Queen Elizabeth II Library you’ll find the best library holdings in Atlantic Canada.
