Most Beautiful University Campuses In Canada

Western University

From gorgeous mountain backdrops to breathtaking green landscapes, Canada is home to some of the most scenic campuses in the world.

Most Canadian students at these institutions get to experience all four seasons, historic buildings and all of the country's natural beauty. Or urban atmosphere, depending on your location. Hey, if you're going to spend a minimum of 36 months behind closed doors (or outside), it better have a good view.

Some of these campuses are not only beautiful, but they're also known for their academics. In a recent report of the Academic Ranking of World Universities 2014 list, four Canadian schools, including the University of Toronto, the University of British Columbia, McGill University and McMaster University all made the top 100.

We've rounded up some of Canada's most beautiful campuses in both scenery and architecture. Which ones did we miss? Let us know in the comments below:
