General Information

In 1996 Nipissing University opened its first regional campus in Bracebridge, Ontario, the heart of Muskoka. The Muskoka Campus offers students the opportunity to study in a safe and friendly location conveniently just two hours from Toronto or North Bay. In September 2008, the Muskoka Campus in Bracebridge opened its doors to a new, technologically advanced, 26,000 square foot academic building. The campus is located in Jubilee Park within close walking distance to all amenities and the main street shops and restaurants.

Our goal is to provide a high quality, personalized learning experience – one student at a time – and it’s a journey made within an unparalleled sense of community. The campus offers students the opportunity to study full-time or part-time towards a Bachelor of Arts degree in Child and Family Studies or Liberal Arts. Concurrent Education (P/J division) is also available to students interested in studying Child and Family Studies.

The Child and Family Studies program engages students in an interdisciplinary approach to learning about children and families in the context of families and the world in which we live. Focusing on applied learning, making links between theory and the real world, you have the opportunity to apply your learning in community settings.

The Liberal Arts degree allows a student to explore big ideas with a clear eye on their future vocational aspirations.  Drawing on the best of arts, science and the professional programming, the Liberal Arts degree will develop students into knowledgeable and inquisitive thinkers capable of identifying and solving complex and concrete problems.

The success and satisfaction of our students is in no small part due to individualized attention, faculty/student interaction and our emphasis on services for students. Classes are taught in small, personalized settings that always inspire lively debate. All Nipissing University students have access to special support programs including Library Services, Career Counselling, Job Search workshops, Academic Skills Programs, Peer Tutoring resources and individualized assistance for students requiring accomodations. Muskoka Campus high school applicants are eligible for all Nipissing University entrance scholarships and bursaries.

The Muskoka Campus residence offers first year students accommodation in four bedroom suites. Each fully furnished suite features private bedrooms, a kitchen with a fridge and stove, a living room and a full bathroom for every two students. Laundry facilities and common areas are located in the residence. Students are connected with local telephone and cable television in all bedrooms and living rooms and the provision of both wireless and wired high speed internet access. The residence has a full-time Residence Life Supervisor who works closely with Residence Dons to create a community built of mutual respect, learning and growing. The Muskoka Campus also maintains a complete list of off-campus housing opportunities for students. These range from individual apartments, shared houses or room and board opportunities.

Students at the Muskoka Campus are full members of the Nipissing University Student Union (NUSU). NUSU is the official body representing the student point of view at the university. Membership provides them with access to health care benefits, a locally elected union representative and a variety of social and recreational opportunities.
