Vancouver College Campus

Welcome to the Sprott Shaw College Vancouver Campus!

Situated in the heart of the Downtown core of the city of Vancouver at the corner of Pender and Howe, the Downtown Vancouver campus is nearby to various amenities like restaurants, coffee shops, shopping centres, bus stops, and is a 3-minute walk from several SkyTrain stations.

Vancouver’s lively culture has a mix of nature and city conveniences at your disposal with mountains, parks, and ocean views for you to enjoy like English Bay, Stanley Park, and Grouse Mountain.

This campus takes great pride in our dedicated instructors and the fact that we provide our students with career-focused educational programs that help them enter the workforce quickly.

We have smaller class sizes, which fosters a higher level of communication between students and instructors. Our graduates who complete the program move on to pursue rewarding careers.
