visit the campus
located in charlottetown, the birthplace of confederation and the capital city of prince edward island, the university of prince edward island (upei) has a rich history with roots in two founding institutions, prince of wales college (est. 1834) and saint dunstan’s university (est. 1855). formed in 1969 as the provincial university, upei honours its proud legacy through academic excellence and research innovation.
why study at upei?
prince edward island may be canada's smallest province, but the island is alive with activity during all seasons. busiest in the summer months when more than a million visitors come to enjoy our world class beaches, golf courses, and fresh seafood, there are activities all year long including kayaking, sailing, hiking, cycling, skiing and so much more.
the greater charlottetown area has a population of about 60,000 and its historic centre and waterfront is home to outstanding restaurants, pubs, shops and theatres. the local farmer’s market, located directly across from upei's campus, is a favourite destination for students and faculty alike. with its safe, clean communities, affordable housing options, and the local airport only minutes from the downtown core, charlottetown, pei is a great place to live and study veterinary medicine.
