Vancouver House Campus

University Canada West has two easily accessible campuses in downtown Vancouver. Our stunning new Vancouver House Campus, located at 1461 Granville St. and our West Pender Campus, located at 626 West Pender St. in the historic London Building.

Our new campus at Vancouver House is in one of the highest-profile developments in Vancouver’s recent history. The campus includes more than 90,000 square feet of space in two of the podium buildings in the iconic Vancouver House development, a globally recognized project designed by architect Bjarke Ingels of BIG.

Vancouver House is in the Beach District, Vancouver’s newest neighbourhood, and is near Granville Island, Sunset Beach, English Bay and Vancouver’s 28-kilometre seawall, the world’s longest uninterrupted waterfront path.

West Pender Campus

In 2014, UCW opened its West Pender Campus in The London Building, a historic office building in the heart of downtown Vancouver.

Since moving into The London Building, UCW completed a major reconfiguration to the lobby, significant improvements to the first and second floors, and renovations to other floors to expand the number of classrooms and add additional amenities for students, faculty and staff.

The campus is steps away from public transit, including the Waterfront SkyTrain Station, bus routes and the SeaBus terminal. The lively and diverse neighbourhood is full of restaurants, stores, entertainment options, shopping centres and gym facilities.

Student lifestyle

UCW students come from more than 45 countries around the world and include Canadian citizens, permanent residents and visiting students who contribute to the diversity and richness of the University. Whether you are a recent high-school graduate, a college or university graduate or transfer student, or a working professional, you will find what you need here.
