Campus Redevelopment

Next Generation Learning Spaces

Our new Centres will be places to learn, innovate and co-create.

Flexible programs and learning spaces will allow students, educators, researchers, and industry partners the ability to transform spaces to suit a project’s needs. The focus on applied learning will create an adaptive and collaborative working environment.

We will also ​enliven the campus with new greenways and bike lanes, on-campus housing and public spaces. These will help create stronger connections with our environment and with each other. The urban ecological restoration of Guichon Creek will bring a weaving waterway to life across campus and become an iconic symbol of BCIT’s sustainability.
