McMaster University is located in the beautiful, eclectic City of Hamilton, Ontario. With a population of over 500,000, Hamilton is the fourth largest city in Ontario, within an hour drive from Toronto, Niagara Falls and the U.S. border.
Hamilton is situated on the shores of Lake Ontario and the Niagara Escarpment, with easy access to many recreational and natural spaces, such as Cootes Parades, the Bruce Trail, and the Hamilton Harbourfront. Hamilton’s diverse cultural backdrop, with an expanding arts scene and a rich history, provides for many ways to learn and explore the heart of the city and its people.

To help new international students learn more about their new home Hamilton, and what it means to be ‘from Hamilton’, International Student Services presents The Hamilton Speaker Series during the Fall term. The Hamilton series invites community leaders and professionals from the City of Hamilton to lead presentations on current issues in five core areas. Students are then invited to attend an excursion off-campus to explore the topic through first-hand experience.
