UQAM inaugurates new campus in Longueuil

November 13, 2012

Monday marked the official inauguration of the Université du Québec à Montréal's new campus in Longueuil, located on the Université de Sherbrooke's campus in the city south of Montreal. With this location, UQAM can now offer day and evening courses in 9 programs, whether for full- or part-time study. Just a 10-minute metro ride from the main campus, the new Longueuil campus is easily accessible and allows students enrolled in programs offered in Longueuil to take courses at the Montreal campus, and vice-versa. UQAM has had a presence in the Montérégie region for more than 32 years, awarding 5,300 undergraduate degrees to date. Currently, 1,200 students, the majority of whom are from the region, are taking courses at the Longueuil campus, an increase of nearly 50% compared to last year. UQAM News (in French)
