Bishop’s University


Bishop’s University is a predominantly residential, undergraduate university. Our primary concern is offering students a quality education in the fine arts, humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, business and education. The residential aspect of our small size (2,500 full-time students) encourages students to immerse themselves in the complete Bishop’s experience.
