University of Ottawa


The College of Bytown was founded in 1848 by the Oblates of Mary Immaculate as a bilingual Catholic college; from its very beginnings, students studied in both English and French. In 1866, the recently renamed College of Ottawa was elevated to university status by royal charter, and in 1889, it secured a pontifical charter.


A good university must do certain things well:

  • Prepare young people to find their place in the world
  • Enable faculty to share their knowledge and to pursue discovery
  • Support its employees as they provide exceptional quality services to its students
