University Canada West

University Canada West is a contemporary independent university located in the heart of vibrant Vancouver.

Established in 2004, UCW offers a range of career-focused programs including the Bachelor of Commerce, Bachelor of Arts in Business Communication, Associate of Arts, and Master of Business Administration. Courses are offered at our downtown Vancouver campus and online too. Offering courses online brings flexibility to education, allowing those who may not have otherwise had the opportunity to gain respected qualifications.

History

University Canada West was founded as a for-profit university by David Strong, the former president of the University of Victoria, and a group of investors. It was intended to cater to British Columbian students who had been turned away from the province's public universities as well as the Asian Pacific market and had projected an eventual enrollment of 3000 students.The establishment of the university marked the first time in British Columbia that a for-profit institution had been authorized to use the designation "university," the result of the province's recently enacted, controversial Degree Authorization Act. UCW was approved in 2004 and opened its doors in 2005 in the former Blanshard Elementary School in Victoria, British Columbia. It initially offered undergraduate degrees in commerce, communications, geography, tourism, and economics and a master's degree in business. However, the geography, tourism, and economics programs were later dropped

Campus Information

Vancouver House Campus

The campus is part of the stunning Vancouver House development. In 2019, CNN named the globally recognized project designed by star Danish architect Bjarke Ingles of BIG, one of the “most anticipated buildings set to shape the world.” Like nearly all excellent architecture, the design for Vancouver House arose directly out of its context. In looking for a solution to this complex site, architect Bjarke Ingels did not begrudgingly accommodate its restrictions; he used those limitations to inform a shape that is as beautiful as it is unique. Awarded Future Project of the Year at the 2015 World Architecture Awards in Singapore for its innovation and its beauty, Vancouver House has since captured the world’s imagination.

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.
