Two beautiful rivers converge in our city and wildlife wander the campus. We are situated between the Rocky Mountains and the Coastal Mountains, both a short drive from campus. If you love outdoor activities this is the place to live, study and explore.

You’ll find UNBC to be an environmentally-minded community. Campus environmental groups offer many opportunities to get involved and change the campus and the community.  Students for a Green University and PGPIRG undertake exciting social and environmental projects.
