Brock University is located in the city of St. Catharines, in the heart of the historic Niagara Peninsula. Surrounded by hiking paths, lakes and vineyards, Brock University is an ideal choice for students who are looking to experience a culture of tradition, adventures and natural beauty. It is also one of the few universities in the world located in a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. The famous Niagara Falls are only 15 minutes from campus, and students can also visit Toronto and Buffalo (U.S.) located just one hour away. 

Established in 1964, Brock is a comprehensive university with strong academic programming and cutting-edge research done in world-class facilities. With more than 18,000 students in seven diverse Faculties, Brock University offers an academic experience that is designed with students' futures in mind. Alongside academics, Brock takes pride in its community outside the classroom. Students can get involved with intramurals, clubs and other extracurricular activities – and cheer on the Brock Badgers at sporting events. Brock also has a "buddy system" to help connect ISEP students with local students and adjust to life in St. Catharines!
