Our Campus

Our campus is a purpose-built, light-filled space designed to foster innovation and collaboration.

With state-of-the-art program space, as well as flexible gathering areas, the building encourages interdisciplinary community with accessibility and sustainability at its core.

The dedicated exhibition spaces offer exciting opportunities for multimedia and large-scale works while peripheral spaces present extraordinary flexibility for innovative exhibitions.

At the intersection of east and west Vancouver on former industrial land, Emily Carr’s new campus is at the forefront of the new heart of Vancouver’s creative industries.



Thanks to smart urban planning, Vancouver is one of the most walkable, bike-friendly and safe cities in North America.

Emily Carr is close to a wide variety of neighborhoods: from quiet tree-lined streets, to relaxed beaches, to the energy of the downtown core. Secure bike cages and dedicated lanes make it simple to ride to campus.

Affordable public transportation – including buses, boats and trains – reaches across the region.


Vancouver has a large community of artists, designers and media practitioners. This is a highly international city that welcomes talented students and professionals from all over the world.

The city boasts strong industry ties in design, digital media, film, animation, gaming and sustainable technology. It’s not just big employers – new studios and start-ups are born here every day.


BC is legendary for its natural beauty, and living in Vancouver puts you in easy reach of it all. Go whale-watching, hiking, sea kayaking and mountain biking year round. Ski or snowboard at over a dozen winter resorts in the vicinity, including Whistler-Blackcomb. Explore 220 parks, 120 skate parks and 350 kilometers of seawall paths right in the metro area.


Our students live off campus, with plenty of options like private rentals, shared rentals, temporary housing and homestays. A housing assistant is available to help all students to connect with prospective landlords and roommates.
