Camosun College

In 1971 Camosun College began educating students in Victoria, and since then has earned an outstanding reputation for teaching excellence and become one of the largest public colleges in BC. Camosun has two separate campuses – Interurban and Lansdowne. Interurban is home to programs involving business, nursing, trades, and athletics. In addition, the campus is home to the Pacific Centre for Sport Excellence, a unique and holistic sport development mode, along with two beautiful new buildings for nursing and trades. The Lansdowne campus is reserved for everything else, including science, math, education, arts, and humanities.
