If there is a fairly large quarters to stay members of the public on the University campus wanted to Randwick accommodation costs (include dedicated booking website) useful.

  • The worst Don't come here if you actually want to learn. All they care about is your money and they raise tuition every year. Go to Carleton, much better Uni.
  • Love the school, HATE THE ACADEMIC ADVISORS. If you think you will ever need help with any tiny little thing, GO TO A DIFFERENT UNIVERSITY. you WILL spend hours on hold without receiving any real information at this university.
  • I graduated in 2012 with a BSc in chemistry. The education was awesome and the experiences I had were also awesome. The faculty is super nice to you when your trying to get in. But once your in pray to god you don't have a conflict with schedules or switching majors or minors. I invested 5 years worth of time and at the end of it got a job. Since 2012 I have had 3 different jobs all in a very related field to my major.
  • The summary of all coment review shows that Its not good for international students. Its juat a univeraity that wants money. Only the building is good while administration is worse and even profesor are not good in language. Moreover many canadian studennts prefer other universities
  • I would rate 0 stars if I could. Do not judge a university based solely on their rankings. UOttawa gives people a terrible undergraduate experience, it's all about the money. The administration is a joke and they are not going to bother improving it, since they only care about their RANKING and RESEARCH. All the negative reviews on here are true! DO NOT COME HERE!
