It’s the best of both worlds: small-town charm, with all the amenities and services of a large university. Less than an hour from Halifax Stanfield International Airport, Dalhousie’s Agricultural Campus is located in picturesque Truro, on the banks of the Salmon River. It offers a range of indoor and outdoor facilities just right for your meeting, conference or celebration—all nestled in nature.
