Work begins on Surrey campus
“Opening 2006 - The future home of Simon Fraser University Surrey.” That's the message that SFU Surrey is proclaiming on a 20-foot-high banner at its new campus in Central City. The banner features a large image of interactive arts and technology student Phil Shen.

Work began in early February on the new campus facilities. A 250-seat lecture theatre will open in the fall of 2005, with the rest of the campus ready for occupancy in September 2006. It will occupy space in the mezzanine, podium and galleria sections of Central City, covering 200,375 square feet in all. Further expansion is planned for 2007 on two more floors of the galleria.
