Brantford campus- Brantford campus is a satellite campus of Nipissing University offering education courses for professional development and part-time Masters of Education courses. On November 16, 2014, the university announced that it would end its partnership with Wilfrid Laurier University and wind down its operations in Brantford in the wake of changes to funding for education programs. As of November 10, 2015, there were 622 students enrolled at this campus. Nipissing University is no longer admitting students at the Brantford campus and the partnership will officially end once the last cohort of current students completes the program in 2019.
