Northeastern is a global research university and a world leader in experiential learning, with a network of locations in Charlotte, London, San Francisco and the Bay Area, Seattle, Toronto, and now Vancouver.
For more than a century, experience has been at the heart of everything we do. Today, experience has never been more critical—deepening learning and driving our collaborative approach to research.
It also guides our growing global university system. Our multiple locations frame a network that includes 3,000 learning and research partners around the world. This network, which now includes Vancouver, expands opportunities for learners and innovators everywhere to share knowledge, ideas, and discoveries.
