General Information

Perched on the edge of the Niagara Escarpment with stunning views, woodland walking trails and lakeside hiking paths, Brock is the only Canadian university with the distinction of being located within a United Nations Environmental, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) World Biosphere Reserve.  The Brock campus is a friendly and inclusive environment. The park-like setting of the University, with its wide-open spaces, offers a number of outdoor activities at any time of year.  In June you can find tulip tree flowers gracing the trees lining the western sidewalk leading to the Schmon Tower!
