History
Nipissing University was formally established in December 1992, with the passing of the Nipissing University Act by the Ontario Legislature. Nipissing had previously existed as an affiliated college and, since 1909, as the North Bay Teachers’ College, which evolved into the Schulich School of Education.

Special Characteristics
Full-time enrolment is approximately 3,700 students. This allows for an average class size of 31 students. The smaller class size encourages students to participate, question freely and receive personal attention.

Nipissing University's main campus is located in the city of North Bay. It is centrally located, just 350km north of Toronto and 350km northwest of Ottawa. It is situated on a wooded escarpment that overlooks the city of North Bay. The 290-hectare campus is a natural setting with a small lake and almost 20km of all-season trails. The campus is also close to both the main shopping centre and downtown.

In addition to our main campus we have two regional campuses. Our Muskoka Campus is located in Bracebridge, about two hours north of Toronto. This technologically advanced campus is located in Jubliee Park within close walking distance to all amenities including main street shops and restaurants. At our Brantford Campus we offer Bachelor of Education-specific courses.
