Welcome to Huron

Founded in 1863, Huron is the founding institution of Western University. Our Liberal Arts University offers elite, yet accessible education where personalized learning experiences position students for professional success, while also developing their character. The result? Students who are formidable Leaders with Heart that care about the people and world around them.

Who thrives at Huron? Every student who welcomes the challenge of interacting with unparalleled faculty and peers in classrooms where you’re held accountable to show up and show off.

Huron is completely unique to post-secondary institutions in Canada. We are creating a university experience unlike any other that prioritizes ethical leadership and community engagement, as much as the pursuit of academic achievement.

As part of Western University, Huron students receive all the benefits of a small campus with all the amenities – academic, social, recreational – of a large university. Those who graduate from Huron receive a Western University degree.


At Huron, we’re proud of what our students accomplish and we are committed to rewarding academic excellence and community service.  We set our bar high because we know you do too.  Because of the generosity of our alumni and donors, Huron can offer guaranteed renewable admission scholarships to all students that meet the requirements.
