Concordia University

The University of Concordia is a next-generation university, continually reimagining the future of higher education

Located in the vibrant and multicultural city of Montreal, Concordia is the top-ranked university in North America founded within the last 50 years.

It annually registers some 51,000 students through its innovative approach to experiential learning and cross-functional research.

While Concordia’s next-generation thinking allows it to constantly look forward, its roots are firmly planted in two distinctive institutions of higher education, both with illustrious histories. 

The university was officially founded on August 24, 1974, following the merger of Loyola College and Sir George Williams University.

Concordia adopted its name from Montreal’s motto, Concordia salus which means “well-being through harmony.”
