History of Laurentian University dates back to 1913 when the Jesuit Fathers created Le Collège du Sacré-Coeur. In 1957, the institution was founded as University of Sudbury and began granting degrees. In 1960, a provincial act provided Laurentian University with a corporate structure to make it a bilingual federation with representatives from United, Roman Catholic and Anglican churches. The Laurentian University Federation included the University of Sudbury, Huntington University founded by the United Church in 1960, and Thorneloe University founded by the Anglican Church in 1961. The institution conducted classes in a temporary site in downtown Sudbury until the current campus opened in 1964. Le Collège Universitaire de Hearst got affiliated with Laurentian University in 1963 and Algoma University College followed in 1965. In the 2020 Maclean's rankings under the category, "Canada's best comprehensive universities", the university was ranked 12.
