Our Campus

Preparatory Programs

University Canada West (UCW) has two easily accessible campuses in downtown Vancouver: 626 West Pender St. in the historic London Building and Vancouver House (opening in 2020).

Our campus at 626 Pender St. currently occupies six floors of the heritage-designated structure and is located only steps away from public transit, including the Waterfront SkyTrain Station, bus routes and the SeaBus terminal. The vibrant and lively neighbourhood is full of restaurants, stores, entertainment options, shopping centres and gym facilities.

Our new campus, Vancouver House, is located in one of the highest profile developments in Vancouver’s recent history.  The campus will include more than 90,000 sq. ft. in the iconic Vancouver House Development, a globally recognized project designed by architect Bjarke Ingels of BIG.

The campus will be situated beneath the Granville Street Bridge, near the elegant Spinning Chandelier, a major public art installation by renowned artist Rodney Graham. It will be located in the Beach District and will be steps from Granville Island, Sunset Beach, English Bay and Vancouver’s 28-kilometre Seawall, the world’s longest uninterrupted waterfront path.

The state-of-the-art campus will be part of an amenities-rich cultural magnet for the city. Students will be within proximity to a range of shops, restaurants and fitness facilities.

UCW is excited to be welcoming students to the new campus in July 2020.

UCW is located within Vancouver’s business district. Many of the world’s biggest companies have offices within walking distance of our downtown campus, providing students with unparalleled access to a network of prospective employers.

Vancouver has been named the third most liveable city in the world by The Economist and that liveability is evident as you stroll through the bustling and scenic city.
