Agricultural Campus

A beautiful place to learn and live

Nestled amid the gorgeous scenery just outside Truro, Nova Scotia, Dalhousie’s Agricultural Campus is only an hour away from Halifax and a short 40-minute drive from the Halifax Stanfield International Airport. You’ll find everything you need as a student within walking or biking distance.

One of a kind in eastern Canada

The Agricultural Campus is home to the Dalhousie Faculty of Agriculture, the only faculty of its kind in Eastern Canada. You'll find state-of-the-art facilities designed specifically for the research and study of agriculture and related disciplines.

Bring your education to life

The campus is a living lab made up of dynamic indoor and outdoor classrooms, including barns and buildings that house a range of animals – from cattle to mink. Scattered across the campus, working gardens provide a beautiful backdrop for your university experience. These living classrooms are valuable teaching and research resources. Some gardens even provide vegetables for on-campus dining.

Fitness and recreation opportunities

As a student at the Faculty of Agriculture, you will have full access to the Langille Athletic Centre. Enjoy recreational and fitness activities, facilities and programs, including weight rooms, cardio machines, badminton, squash, basketball and fitness classes.

A world of information at your fingertips

The MacRae Library has the largest collection of agricultural resources in Canada's Atlantic Provinces. Friendly librarians provide assistance in navigating the vast amount of information available to you.
