UCW returns to campus

Intake is thrilled to welcome you back to university, and we want you to have the educational experience you have always desired! We found the ideal opportunity for students to return to campus because our partner University Canada West is excited to welcome students back for the Fall Term (October 2021). 

 

Most students will be attending classes for the first time UCW's beautiful new Vancouver House Campus. UCW Vancouver House, at more than 90,000 square feet, can house up to 3,400 students.

The campus is located within the stunning Vancouver House development. CNN named the globally recognized project designed by BIG's star Danish architect Bjarke Ingels as one of the "most anticipated buildings set to shape the world" in 2019. 

 

"We are excited to welcome students back to campus after more than a year and a half of online classes and virtual meetings," said Brock Dykeman, President and Vice-Chancellor of UCW. "We are reopening our campuses in a safe and responsible manner, following the advice of British Columbia's Public Health Officer and the Ministry of Advanced Education, to ensure the safety of our students, faculty, and staff." 

 

For the Fall Term, UCW is implementing several safety measures on both campuses, including the return of Student Health Ambassadors and the continued use of masks in all classrooms and common areas.  

  

"Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, our top priority has been the health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff," said President Dykeman. "These precautions are intended to protect the health and well-being of all employees, students, and visitors who visit our campuses."
