Life at Northern
Boundless nature, beautiful vistas, small town life. Oh and excellent education, in small classrooms that put you first.
We’re pretty relaxed up here. Want to ride your skidoo to school during the winter? Feel free to do just that.
Want to get outside during your breaks between classes? Each one of our campuses is steps away from nature trails, lakes and any other outdoor activity you can imagine.
Local breweries, restaurants, music festivals, camping, hunting, fishing, hiking – it’s all right here, and it’s all affordable. We believe in life worth living.
We take your mental and physical health seriously and provide a variety of accessible supports with zero or no wait times to help you get your best work done and focus on the things that will set you up properly to succeed in life.
Worried about having enough cash for school? Northern College gives away some of the highest ratios of financial assistance in the province – nearly a million dollars a year in student bursaries, and with a relatively small student body, the odds of getting some much needed financial support are very high.

Student Life & Services
Your success is incredibly important to you, so we provide accessible student supports to help you achieve your educational goals. From mental health supports, to study assistance and financial assistance, we’ve got you covered.
Check out all the ways in which we can support you.
Each of Northern’s campuses boasts workout and training facilities, a gym, cafeteria, study areas and a library – places that you can go to help keep you focused as you work your way through your awesome studies.
Earning an education isn’t just about what you learn in the classroom, it’s about the friends and connections you make along the way, the experiences you have and the memories you’ll create. A good part of that happens off-campus.
The communities we call home are incredible places, with people and things to do. The wilderness of northeastern Ontario surrounds us, and in our opinion, there is no better place to relax and unwind, share a laugh, have a drink or two and make some incredible memories.
