So Much to Do

Ottawa offers everything one expects from a major urban center: a thriving arts scene and local food and drink that’s among the best in the nation. But the city also boasts the type of natural wonders, outdoor activities, and charm that is often lacking in many major cities. Paths for biking, jogging, walking, and blading are woven into the fabric of Ottawa’s downtown core; the Rideau Canal, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, flows through the city; and beautiful green spaces are peppered throughout. Perhaps even more attractive is that most of these are accessible by foot—a rare feature in any cosmopolitan city. During the winter, the Rideau Canal is transformed into one of the longest skating rinks in the world.


Conveniently located on the east end of Ottawa in the St. Laurent Shopping Centre. Tailored to meet the demand for Healthcare, Business, and Technology professionals in the nation’s capital, Herzing’s curriculum is designed to keep pace with the growing needs of industry.

The Ottawa campus is equipped with computers designed to facilitate the learning experience. It has a resource library, a student lounge, and its laboratories and classrooms are designed to engage students through hands-on learning.

The campus is located at:

Interlanguages Language School
Address: 130 Albert Street – Suite 170, Ottawa, ON K1P 5G4
Phone:(613) 236-3764


There are a range of living accommodations available near the campus, so Herzing students can find the type of arrangement that will work for them.

Herzing College staff can provide information on different places to look for apartments. There are also numerous housing sites available that will fit your ideal living scenario (for example: price, smoking, number of bedrooms, and access to public transportation). This service is free.


The Herzing College – Ottawa campus is accessible by several means. The most popular are by public transit, bike, or foot.


There are two city bus systems in Canada’s Capital Region. OC Transpo operates on the Ontario side of the Ottawa River, and the Société de Transport de l’Outaouais operates on the Quebec side. You can transfer between the systems along Rideau and Wellington streets in Ottawaaround the Portage Bridge, and at the Place d’accueil on Maisonneuve Boulevard in Gatineau.


One of the best ways to get around the city is by bike. Canada’s Capital Region is home to more than 180 kms (112 miles) of recreational pathways linking the city’s green spaces, attractions, residential areas, and more.


Visitors are pleasantly surprised by Ottawa’s walkable downtown core.
