SFU Continuing Studies Campuses
SFU's Vancouver campus
SFU's Vancouver campus, which consists of several buildings, is conveniently located in the heart of downtown. Most Continuing Studies courses take place at Harbour Centre (look for the observation deck at the top of the building), which is across the street from Waterfront Station, the main transit terminus for the SeaBus, SkyTrain, and West Coast Express.
Getting here is easy, and we offer several resources to make your learning experience as convenient as possible. For details like directions, where to park, and more, visit our FAQ section below.
