CapilanoU to establish Squamish campus with purchase of former Quest property


Capilano University has purchased Primacorp Ventures’ university campus property in Squamish, supported by $48M in funding from the Government of British Columbia. The 18-acre purpose-built campus–formerly used by Quest University–includes teaching spaces, a library, an athletic centre and sports field, and a cultural and creative activity area. 100 students are reportedly expected on campus in 2024. CapilanoU is also exploring options for operating a childcare centre as well as student housing on the campus property. “Together, we have an established 40-year history of collaboration and shared vision for Squamish and the district is thrilled CapU has returned to Squamish in this way,” said Squamish Mayor Armand Hurford. “We look forward to new opportunities and renewed connections as we begin this next chapter.”
