Carew), the Alexander Murray, the Faculty of Business Administration, and the C-CORE (Captain Robert A. Bartlett) buildings, St. John's College, Coughlan College, Queen's College, Spencer Hall, and the Fisheries and Marine Institute on Ridge Road. The National Research Council's Institute for Ocean Technology is also located on the north side of the campus. Slightly further north is the Memorial University of Newfoundland Botanical Garden. The Ocean Sciences Centre is located to the west at Logy Bay.

The Fisheries and Marine Institute is headquartered on Ridge Road in St. John's, and is Canada's leading centre of education, training, applied research and technology transfer for the ocean industries. As part of Memorial University of Newfoundland, Marine Institute offers degrees, advanced diplomas, diplomas of technology, certificates in such fields as marine transportation, food and water quality, naval architecture, aquaculture, coastal zone management and marine environmental.

The institute has a number of state-of-the-art centres and units, including the Offshore Safety and Survival Centre (OSSC), the Safety Emergency and Response Training Centre (SERT), the Centre of Marine Simulation (CMS), the Centre for Aquaculture and Seafood Development (C-ASD), MI International and the Centre for Sustainable and Aquatic Resources (C-SAR). These areas lead to the institute in applied research and technology transfer and also provide training to a variety of industry clients.

7.4.2 Corner Brook

Memorial University of Newfoundland's Corner Brook campus, Sir Wilfred Grenfell College, stands on a magnificent 185-acre site with a spectacular view of the city of Corner Brook and the Bay of Islands.

The campus was established in 1975, and in 1979 was named in honour of Sir Wilfred Grenfell, a medical missionary who pioneered medicine in northern Newfoundland and along the coast of Labrador. Located on University Drive, Grenfell College's small campus features four academic buildings. The Arts and Science building houses administrative offices, academic classrooms and labs, recreational facilities, a bookstore and a student residence. Student housing has since been expanded to include eight chalet-style apartment buildings, as ground was recently broken to construct another major residence complex on campus. The Fine Arts building features state-of-the-art facilities for theatre and visual arts programs. The Library and Computing contains the Ferris Hodgett Library, a computer lab and lecture hall facilities. The Student Centre, an annex to the Arts and Science building, provides dining and recreational space for the student population, as well as office space for the Grenfell College Student Union. The Forest Centre houses classroom, lab and lecture space, as well as the offices of the Canadian Forest Service and other partners. Through a partnership with the city of Corner Brook, Memorial University of Newfoundland recently assumed operation of the city's civic centre (the Pepsi Centre), which houses two ice surfaces, a fitness centre, and meeting, conference and concert venues.

Sir Wilfred Grenfell College's programs are a testament to the beauty that surrounds the campus. Artists find their inspiration in the landscape and culture of the area. Scientists and researchers strive to protect the natural wonder of the place. Historians research our varied history, and literary enthusiasts write about their sense of where we are. This small, spectacular campus offers a personalized undergraduate education in a wide variety of interdisciplinary experiences: students may choose from degrees in arts, business administration, fine arts, education, nursing, science or resource management. Grenfell College's low student-instructor ratio ensures that individual attention is the norm and there is ample opportunity to get to know the faculty.

In 1966 the Board of Regents approved the establishment of a small residential campus at Harlow, Essex approximately midway between London and Cambridge. The Campus went through extensive modernisation in 2002 and the refurbished campus was designed to meet the needs of today's students - those from Memorial University of Newfoundland wishing to study in Europe and those in Europe interested in pursuing studies at Harlow Campus. The Campus is equipped with technologically equipped meeting facilities and residence accommodations for up to 51, as well as excellent food service capacity.

Up until March 2007, the Campus was operated by the Harlow Campus Trust, but in April 2007 the trust was replaced by a new company entitled MUN (UK), a company limited by guarantee and incorporated under English Law, to direct the operations of the Campus.

The main campus building is a converted 19th century Maltings (formerly used for drying barley for brewing) - accommodating 40 students in twin ensuite accommodation, which can be converted to single accommodation when required. In addition there is a purpose designed single bedroom for a disabled guest. A further 10 students can be accommodated in Cabot House, a self-contained residence house in a 17th century cottage with four twin rooms and two single rooms all with shared facilities.

Each bedroom in both the Maltings and Cabot House has a direct dial inward telephone and computer point with internet access (for use with personal lap-top computers).

The Campus has three fully self-contained faculty properties each with one double and one twin room. These are two apartments at 44 and 46 Market Street and St. John's Cottage.

Conference/training space is available in St. John's House, which is the main lecture hall situated in a converted Victorian Schoolhouse. The lecture hall is fully networked and has audio visual connectivity. Flexible seating arrangements means the facility can comfortably accommodate up to 30 delegates. Additional conference/training space is available in the Lord Taylor Room situated in the Maltings. This conference room is fully networked and has flexible seating arrangements accommodating up to 20 delegates.

The Resources Room in the Maltings accommodates the library and small computer suite (which is set up to be additional teaching space when required). An area of the room is designed to be quiet space with study cubicles and comfortable seating.

There are a number of scholarships, bursaries and awards available to students wishing to attend Harlow. For further information refer to the Scholarships, Bursaries and Awards section.
