Where you're more than just a number

At UNB, we bring a diverse group of students together with our nationally recognized professors to learn in small classes and labs.

Our campuses are located in two New Brunswick cities: Fredericton and Saint John. Fredericton, the provincial capital, was named one of the Top 7 Intelligent Communities by the New York-based Intelligent Communities Forum. Saint John, New Brunswick's financial and industrial centre, is emerging as an energy hub for the Eastern Seaboard.
