Capilano University has announced plans to open a new satellite campus in the North Vancouver community of Lower Lonsdale this September.
Designed by DIALOG, CapU Lonsdale will feature 15 foot high ceilings and a 60 foot long balcony. The innovative design reflects Capilano University’s relationship to the West Coast. Looking out towards the ocean, the space will serve as a reprieve from urban surroundings and brings a sense of adventure, exploration and enlightenment indoors to create a sense of discovery through learning.
At the end of August, 2019, Capilano University will take occupancy of 11,000 square feet on the second floor of 125 Victory Ship Way to deliver educational programs and services beginning in the fall term. The new space Lonsdale will provide students with an exceptional learning and teaching environment that can also be adapted for meetings and community use.
Given its proximity to the Lonsdale Quay and SeaBus terminal, CapU Lonsdale is an ideal learning location for both commuting students and residents of the North Shore. Capilano University’s Continuing Studies & Executive Education will be relocated to the new branch campus where its evening and weekend courses, programs and custom training opportunities will be more easily accessed from across the Lower Mainland.
All five of Capilano University’s faculties (Business & Professional Studies; Fine & Applied Arts; Arts & Sciences; Education, Health & Human Development; and Global & Community Studies) will offer select courses or programs at the branch campus.
By expanding to The Shipyards, Capilano University’s main North Shore campus on Purcell Way will have additional capacity for planned new programs and services to extend options and opportunities.
