Moving to Hamilton

McMaster University is located in Hamilton, Ontario, on a 300-acre property that is sheltered by the Niagara Escarpment and bordered by conservation land and the Royal Botanical Gardens. Situated at the head of Lake Ontario, Hamilton is the fourth largest city in the province, and the region is one of the fastest growing in Canada. Within minutes of award winning wineries and surrounded by lush farmland, Hamilton offers its residents a country lifestyle with all the benefits of a booming city. Affordable housing, together with access to world class athletic facilities, beautiful hiking and cycling trails, outstanding restaurants, and local theater make Hamilton one of the fastest growing cities in the country. Hamilton is also within an hour’s drive of Toronto and is the same distance to the U.S. border (Buffalo, New York).

General information about Hamilton and the surrounding area can be found on the City of Hamilton website.
