About University Canada West

University Canada West (UCW) has one priority —to be known in Canada and around the world, for innovative techniques in preparing learners for work. Our goal is to transform students into visionary leaders for global communities.

The Vancouver factor

Vancouver is in British Columbia and was voted the 3rd best city to live in by The Economist magazine*.

It’s a cosmopolitan place where you’ll find  like-minded individuals taking advantage of the city’s unique academic and work opportunities.

Our campus

UCW has two campuses - 626 West Pender St. in the historic London Building and Vancouver House (opening July 2020).

The Pender Street building has excellent transport links, including the Waterfront SkyTrain Station, and the SeaBus terminal. The bustling neighbourhood is full of entertainment and has something for all, whether you’re a shopaholic or a sports enthusiast.

Vancouver House is part of a high-profile development scheme designed by renowned architect, Bjarke Ingels of BIG. The campus will have more than 90,000 sq. ft of space and will accommodate more than 3,400 students.

Many of the world’s largest corporations are within walking distance of our downtown campus, giving learners fantastic access to potential employers.
