We All Share the Success of CBU

If you’ve truly experienced the community surrounding and supporting Cape Breton University, you would agree there is no community quite like it. There is no community more welcoming, ripe for discovery, or more driven by innovation. It’s truly our pleasure to welcome you to the diverse, thriving campus of CBU.

CBU is a vibrant place where we champion the Island’s prosperity and establish key relationships between our university and our community. Being involved, contributing partners in Cape Breton is integral to our success.

Our campus is a space for all community members to share. We welcome you to explore what we have to offer, from the Boardmore Playhouse, to the Art Gallery, to the Beaton Institute. We also have a new Student Welcome Centre in the Great Hall that is a perfect first stop on your next visit.

CBU is an exciting hub for cultural activity, research and collaboration. Join us for unforgettable events, community programming and much more.
