Capilano University plans to open a new campus in Lower Lonsdale this September.
Capilano University will occupy the second floor of 125 Victory Ship Way to deliver programs that will begin this fall.
Featuring 15-foot-high ceilings and a 60-foot-long balcony, the innovative design will reflect Capilano University’s relationship to the West Coast, said the university’s marketing manager Victoria Miles.
Capilano University will relocate its Continuing Studies & Executive Education to the new branch, where the evening and weekend courses will be easily accessible 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, Miles noted.
CapU Lonsdale represents an exceptional opportunity for us to broaden our outreach and community contributions, strengthen local connections and provide a strong selection of our programming in a central location on the North Shore,” says Paul Dangerfield, president of Capilano University.
