The New Brunswick University is a public university that has two main campuses: the original campus, founded in 1785 in Fredericton, and a smaller campus opened in Saint John in 1964.
The New Brunswick University is situated on the traditional territory of the Wolastoqey people. The river that flows beside the university is Wolastoq (beautiful and bountiful river), along which live the Wolastoqiyik (Maliseets).
The University of New Brunswick is the first English-language university in Canada, but the first language spoken in this land is Wolastoqey latuwewakon. The first teachings on the land were the teachings of the Wolastoqiyik.
Other buildings brought into being through his efforts and those of his family were:
- Lady Beaverbrook Gymnasium
- Aitken House
- Faculty of Law building
- Aitken Centre
In 1947, his Lordship became the University’s Chancellor, to be succeeded by his son, Sir Max Aitken, in 1966 and in turn by Lady Violet Aitken, the wife of Sir Max, who served until 1993.
After the Second World War, returning veterans pushed registration to more than 770 in 1946, almost double the number enrolled in 1941. With this increased student population came a commensurate increase in faculty and course offerings, and a surge of building activity that transformed the campus.
The middle years of the last century at UNB were marked by the Chancellorship and patronage of Lord Beaverbrook. Sometimes through his efforts, sometimes otherwise, we have had a number of important and distinguished people visit the University.
