Get to know Metro Vancouver
Metro Vancouver is one of the most livable cities in the world, and SFU's campuses are located throughout the region.
One of your student benefits is the U-Pass BC, which lets you access the public transit system, including buses, SkyTrain and SeaBus (excludes the West Coast Express). All three campuses are located near SkyTrain lines, and if you're exploring Vancouver for the first time, we recommend that you get familiar with the SkyTrain system first. (See Getting your U-Pass BC.)

We also post a list of events happening around Metro Vancouver in our monthly update. Find it in your email or on our blog!
