Visiting Campus


Thinking about popping in for a visit? We’d love to see you! We ask only that you abide by some general guidelines. Call 250.391.2411 with any questions, or email


before you visit

  • Campus Visitors

    Visitors are most welcome. However, to avoid disrupting classes and activities, students who left last year, friends and siblings of current students are allowed to stay overnight only on Fridays or Saturdays, subject to the availability of rooms in the Max Bell Hall. We do not encourage parents to stay on campus unless in exceptional circumstances. Visiting parents are asked to find off campus accommodation. Contact for a list of recommended accommodations.

    Permission to visit or stay overnight must be obtained in advance from the Dean of Students. During the first two months of the school year, when first and second year students are getting to know each other, and during the examination period stretching from the second half of April (when more intense preparations begin) to the end of term, we generally ask that students do not invite guests to the College, or host them.

upon arrival

  • Check in at the Administration building to update your contact information and to pay your room and board fee.

  • Staff can advise you about changes on campus since you left! Please make sure you are aware of College rules, some of which may have changed since you were a student.

  • Join students, faculty and staff for meals in the cafeteria during your term-time stay. Meal tickets can be purchased from the Receptionist in the Administration building.

  • Note that that there is no smoking permitted on campus.

  • Remember that people live on campus year-round; please respect their privacy and be sure not to enter the houses unless accompanied by a house resident.
