Brescia is Canada’s only women’s university. We were founded in 1919 by the Ursuline Sisters, strong women of faith who are committed to social justice, community service, and the development of female leaders. While our roots are in the Catholic faith, we are open to – and embrace – women of all faiths and backgrounds.
With a student population of approximately 1,350 Brescia provides a student-centered education, enriched by extra-curricular opportunities and an empowering environment that promotes the development of leadership skills, academic and personal growth.
Brescia University College is affiliated with Western University, the third-largest university in the province. That means you’ll benefit from the small, supportive atmosphere at Brescia while still enjoying the resources a large scale university like Western has to offer. Upon graduation, you will receive your degree from Western University.
