Life at George Brown
If you love the city life, George Brown College is for you.
George Brown College’s location gives students access to top employers for field education and networking opportunities. It also means you’ll get to enjoy other perks of going to school downtown, including being close to great cafes, restaurants, shopping, and Toronto attractions. Our three campuses — Casa Loma, St. James and Waterfront — are all easily accessible by public transit and surrounded by bike lanes as part of Toronto’s cycling network.
While our campuses are currently closed due to COVID-19, we offer strong online programs and academic support, as well as active and engaged student life supports and online events. Select groups of students are approved to return to campus to complete hands-on and clinical lab work.
