VIU campus

The campus of the educational institution is located in Nanaimo. This opens up all the delights of life in a big city for students: a rich infrastructure, a large selection of entertainment, convenient transport, as well as more opportunities for internships or part-time jobs. However, for some students, such an abundance of opportunities can be distracting. University students have access to the library. It contains a collection of scientific papers, textbooks and fiction. Thanks to international exchange programs at VIU, students can communicate with representatives of different countries and nationalities and thus expand their own horizons. And, the university contributes to this by regularly holding joint events for local and foreign students.
