Being located in the Shipyards District—one of the oldest and fastest-growing neighbourhoods in the city—has its advantages. And we just don’t mean the food. Or the stunning views. Or the exciting urban energy. We mean all of the following, as well:
Easy to get to
CapU Lonsdale is virtually next door to the Lonsdale Quay Exchange, which is the second busiest bus exchange on the North Shore. That means there are approximately a bazillion buses you can take to get here. Check the TransLink Trip Planner to see which one works best for you.
The Lonsdale Quay exchange is also home to the SeaBus terminal. You can take a boat to school! Count seabirds and freighters on the way to class. Maybe wear a captain’s hat and salute everyone nearby (if nothing else, it’s a great way to ensure no one sits beside you).
CapU Lonsdale is in the heart of North Vancouver. Similar to other urban university campuses, parking is not provided at CapU Lonsdale. The City of North Vancouver, however, provides paid parking options in the Lower Lonsdale neighbourhood that are accessible to students, staff, and visitors.
For more information on parking options, see parking in Lower Lonsdale.
A natural for networking
Located in the Shipyards District, CapU Lonsdale is surrounded by restaurants, coffee shops, museums, galleries, and a public market (not to mention several craft breweries), making it easy and enjoyable to network with classmates and colleagues.
Just don’t stay out too late; you have work tomorrow.
Classrooms that are in a class of their own
The unique interior design of CapU Lonsdale celebrates the natural West Coast environment. It’s a calm space ideal for thought, reflection, and focused learning. Like floating in space.
Speaking of space, we’d like to mention that some people in the office think the hanging ceilings look like Imperial Star Destroyers.
Let us know if you agree.
A site for sights
Waterfront views, mountain scenery, a stunning Vancouver skyline, and vibrant street life make every visit to our new location a source of inspiration.
In fact, you might be tempted to hang out for hours just to take it all in. That’s fine, but do remember to come to class. Or just show up early. Then you can head to class in an unrushed, relaxed frame of mind.
In the middle of the action: Business happens here
CapU Lonsdale is situated in the heart of a growing business community; we’re connected to North Shore commerce, entrepreneurs, and enterprise like no one else.
This access lets us work with partners and industry leaders to help develop courses and bring real-world expertise into the classroom.
