Established in 1848, uOttawa was founded by the first Roman Catholic bishop of the Bytown diocese, oblate priest Joseph-Bruno Guigues. The university was first called Bytown College and was originally located in a wooden building beside the Notre-Dame Cathedral Basilica. Later on in 1856, the institution was moved to a property in Sandy Hill donated by businessman and political figure, Louis-Théodore Besserer. When uOttawa gained its university status in 1866, it also became the last institution to receive a Royal Charter from London. However, it was not until July of 1965 when the university became a publicly funded corporation, independent from other institutions, including religious organizations.
For the past 20 years, uOttawa has been exerting dedicated efforts in the research field, making it one of the top research-intensive universities in the country. Part of this growth is reinforcing its STEM-focused research studies by launching the STEM Complex in 2018. The STEM Complex is composed of facilities dedicated to research studies in innovating teaching and learning.
Aside from uOttawa’s goal to be an internationally acclaimed university, part of its growth plan is to establish sustainability not only in terms of environmental matters but also when it comes to the financial stability and the physical and mental well-being of those within its community.
