Thunder Bay Campuses

Greetings and welcome to the heart of Northwestern Ontario and home to Confederation College's main campus. Here is everything you need to know about our dynamic campus life, top-notch facilities, and the scenic beauty of Thunder Bay.

Campus Insights

Our Thunder Bay campus spans 173 acres and includes a lush, urban forest. It’s a place where learning and nature meet, and it highlights our commitment to sustainability. The campus merges modern educational spaces with sustainable indoor and outdoor features that are conducive to learning and innovation. The campus design makes it easy to get around (every building is less than a five-minute walk from the next), and it helps to foster a close community feel among students and staff. Our Aviation Centre of Excellence (ACE), the only building not located at the main campus, is just a short 10-minute drive, at the Thunder Bay International Airport.
