  • Great experience visiting Western University from Penn State! It’s huge with many nice architectural resources! The students are walking around till midnight in a winter night, I can only anticipate the life in spring! I found many halal and regular restaurants near by!
  • Hate hate hate hospitals but the staff at University were absolutely Wonderful at our recent visit. It was just an outpatient appointment but never having been to University before we had no idea where we were going. The kindness and friendliness we were shown helped put us at our ease and made the whole thing a much nicer experience. Thankyou all!!!!!
  • Beautiful campus. My daughter just graduated with her third degree from Western. Where have the last 8 years gone? So proud of her and all her accomplishments. Western was definitely the school for her!
  • If you have a disability and require accommodations, think long and hard if this is where you want to go. I cannot recommend Western, it is just not a good place to study at. I hope Western will one day change, but it's too late for me. Western will say all sort of things, but I am going to remain entirely factual. Western, shame on you. My average is about 85; this is not about grades. About a year and something ago, an external review found Western to be very lacking in accessibility. Despite the strong words in the report, it is an understatement. What Western will not tell you is accessibility impacts most students, but only very few students are aware of it. I am a current student in the university, doing my BsC in Computer Science. I happen to have a disability, nothing big, and the university is well aware; I went through the required processes and everything. The accommodations I request aren't a big deal (or rather, shouldn't be), but I find that more often than not, they create more problems than they solve because instructors simply ignore them entirely, doesn't matter how much I chase them (they ignore the accessible education staff too). I found multiple people to be dishonest, flippant, and overall exhibit ableist behavior. Many times faculty members placed me in bad situations by not providing accommodations, adding unnecessary barriers to getting said accommodations, and so on. While there are some truly fantastic people in the faculty, they seem to be a small minority. Today was the last day that something could have been at least somewhat resolved, and despite them being super aware of this fact, they did nothing (they had months to do so, actually, they could have solved things easily over a year ago, they just chose not to). I would be forced into taking an additional year of studies to compensate for the university's inaccessibility, only I am currently probably just going to graduate with a 3-year degree instead, because I cannot afford a 5th year. If you do decide to go to Western, good luck, you'll need it!
  • Western university is beautiful in terms of study environment, architecture and many more things. I like the study view from the Amit Chakma building, gives you an amazing outside view while doing your work.
