Collegium

September of 2000 marked the grand opening of the West Coast Collegium. The Collegium Program, which took its name from the Latin for “gathering place,” was intended to provide commuting students with a “home away from home” where they could study, relax, and connect with other students, staff, and faculty. The first such facility was located in Douglas Centre, in the school’s former cafeteria.

The Pacific Rim Collegium, a new building situated near the Vernon Strombeck Centre, was dedicated on March 27, 2003, and in 2005 the Graduate Collegium was installed in Fosmark Centre.
