The University of New Brunswick (UNB) is a non-denominational university located in New Brunswick. It is the oldest English language university in Canada and one of four schools that claim the title of oldest public university in North America (the University of Georgia, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and The College of William and Mary also claim this title).
UNB has two main campuses: the original campus, founded in 1785 in Fredericton, and a smaller campus which opened in Saint John in 1964. In addition, there are two small satellite health sciences campuses located in Moncton and Bathurst, New Brunswick, and two offices in the Caribbean and in Beijing. UNB offers over 75 degrees in fourteen faculties at the undergraduate and graduate levels with a total student enrollment of approximately 11,400 between the two principal campuses. In the fall of 2010, UNB partnered with Dalhousie University and the government of New Brunswick to open the first English-language medical school in the province at the Saint John campus. – less
