From the UOttawa website: It makes sense that Canada's premier bilingual university would be found in the heart of Canada's capital. Since 1848, the University of Ottawa has offered students a place where French and English Canada come together, share ideas, information and viewpoints. This gives our students a dynamic perspective on their studies.
We give them the opportunity to study, live and play in English, French or both. We offer them collaborative research projects and student-exchange programs through some 140 bilateral agreements with sister universities in over 50 countries. We offer a multicultural environment by welcoming students and professors from virtually every continent. And we encourage them to gain new experiences by taking part in the many international, government and cultural events staged in our own backyard, the nation's capital.
Housing: Residence is the ideal place to create strong bonds of friendship, to learn about people from different cultures and backgrounds, to meet people from other faculties, to enjoy the sense of community only a group can provide, or to experience living with a roommate.
