City Information

City of Greater Sudbury

Laurentian is a destination of choice for students from all across Ontario, the country and abroad. As the northern Ontario hub for health, education, government, mining and retail, the City of Greater Sudbury offers the unique advantages of a metropolitan area while remaining a truly tight-knit community. Combined with its enviable natural setting of freshwater lakes and boreal forests, it offers outstanding quality of life.

Sudbury’s multicultural and multilingual fabric makes us a global village of 160,000. We are French, Métis, Inuit and First Nations, Italian, Finnish, Polish, Chinese, Greek, Ukrainian and Croatian. Many cultural communities hold festivals and special events to celebrate their own rich heritage.

The Sudbury downtown core is only a seven minute drive from the university. Every student enjoys unlimited city bus service throughout the academic year, making it easy to come and go at a moment’s notice.
