This university has 2 campuses, set approximately 7 kilometres apart: located in the Quartier Concordia, Sir George Williams Campus is the main campus, and Loyola Campus in the suburban district of Notre-Dame-de-Grâce. With 4 faculties, a school of graduate studies and numerous centres, colleges and institutes, the university offers over 200 graduate and 400 undergraduate programs and courses.

The university is welcoming, committed and engaged in excellence and innovation in research, education, community partnerships and creative activities. Concordia University's mission is to rank among Canada's top comprehensive institutions within the next decade and to be the primary choice for faculty and students locally and internationally in broad and defined research and study areas.

Research creation activities at Concordia University take a broad-spectrum approach to industry needs, social issues, cultural diversity and technology and science.
