As provincial regulations now allow, UNBC is resuming in-person guided tours of our Prince George campus. We are excited to welcome guests back to campus!
A visit to UNBC is the best way to learn about the university and get a feel for our campus and community. Walk among students, staff, and faculty and learn more about the distinct UNBC personality. Your guide will give you the insider experience while introducing you to the buildings in which you might study, live or work.
Located in the spectacular landscape of northern British Columbia, UNBC is one of Canada’s best small universities. The University features a main campus in Prince George, with regional facilities around northern BC including campuses in Quesnel, Terrace and Fort St. John.
The Prince George campus has been designed to reflect the northern environment. Large wood beams frame sunlit atriums, while slate and stone are featured prominently on floors and columns. To further strengthen the connection between the campus and the environment, none of the buildings is taller than the surrounding trees.
Connected to our surroundings
The campus sits on about 550 hectares of university property, providing an ideal outdoor classroom for courses ranging from forestry to anthropology. From a recreational perspective, trails from the campus connect to a network of nearly 50km of hiking, biking, and skiing trails in Forests for the World and along the Cranbrook Hill Greenway.
