Who We Are

Crandall is a not-for-profit Liberal Arts University located in beautiful Moncton, New Brunswick, and is the largest faith-centred university in Atlantic Canada. We offer a variety of undergraduate, graduate, and certificate program options, with intellectually challenging courses focused on delivering a rigorous, holistic, and transformative learning experience. At Crandall, you will find a safe, warm, and caring community with professors and staff who are passionate about being examples by living out the Christian faith and giving students the support necessary to thrive and enjoy student life to the fullest!

Why CU?

Your student wants certain things from their University experience. As a parent, you also want the assurance that the University will prepare your child well for a rewarding career and provide a nurturing environment that enables them to succeed. The education your child receives at Crandall is well-respected throughout Canada and internationally, and every degree we offer prepares your child for a specific career area as well as graduate school, if that is their desired post-graduation path.

Courses are taught by professors who are not only recognized leaders in their fields, but who also love to teach and mentor their students. Our low classroom ratio of students to professors (13:1) ensures that your child will receive lots of one-on-one attention and have the opportunity to get to know their talented professors well. Students will graduate ready to have an impact and make a difference in their world!

Our goal at Crandall is to help students learn to be the healthiest versions of themselves, and to help set them up with skills that will help them throughout their whole life.

On-campus Housing:

There is so much to gain from living on campus. Nothing matches the opportunities for friendship, fun, faith, convenience, support, and involvement the way life in residence does. Students enjoy easy access to the dining room, library, gym, and other key facilities on our Crandall campus.

When there are breaks between classes, students have a quiet and convenient place close by to connect with friends, relax, or study. Plus, they have the amazing opportunity to make lifelong friends and connections! The campus housing program at Crandall is truly a significant part of what makes a student’s time here life-changing. Living in residence is the best way to fully experience university life, succeed academically, and make those lifelong friends.

We encourage your students to come experience quality on-campus living that provides safe and inviting housing options that also meets their need for both independence and support.
