On Campus

You might have heard us say we’re different, and there’s a pretty good reason for that. It’s because we provide a quality education for working professionals, and we’re pretty good at it. You don’t have to take our word for it, just have a look at what our students and graduates say on our testimonials page.

Our campus also houses two hundred and sixty hectares of parkland. Scenic lagoon. Distant mountains. A castle. On campus housing. Take a look at our campus map to see more.

A few things you won’t see on our campus. Dorm parties. Football stadiums. Sorority houses. Sure, we like to have fun, but we know you’re here to find an education you can use in the real world, and we think our campus will give you the means to have the kind of fun that works best for you.

But it’s not just our look that’s different. It’s our attitude and approach to your education that sets us apart. We’ve created programs with the help of industry professionals to give you real world examples and practical skills you can put to work as soon as you get back to your career. Our programs are taught by faculty who understand what it’s like to work in the real world, and provide you with the tools and techniques you can use to unlock your full potential.

Enjoy Your Stay on Our Campus

Whether you’re enjoying the residency component of your online program or you’re engaged in an accelerated on campus degree program, we invite you to explore our campus and enjoy some of our differences.

After you’ve explored the natural wonder of our campus, you might want to look for some of our academic buildings. To help you become familiar with the grounds, you can book a campus orientation tour to learn where everything is.
