Grenfell is a campus of Memorial University of Newfoundland, one of the largest universities in Atlantic Canada, and one of the country's top five schools for comprehensive course offerings. Located in Corner Brook, our students enjoy a friendly, safe and clean environment.

With only 1300 students on campus, you will get the attention you deserve to build confidence and develop skills to succeed in your personal, academic, and professional life. We offer a mix of arts and culture, the great outdoors and a variety of academic disciplines.

Grenfell focuses on students by offering small class sizes and a low professor- student ratio. The campus offers degree programs in arts, business, education, fine arts, resource management, and science.
