About the campus
SFU’s original campus atop Burnaby Mountain offers a panoramic, mountain-framed view of the Vancouver region. This vibrant campus, established over 40 years ago, has become a community for gathering, learning, sporting events, research and celebration. The Burnaby campus borders transit bus loops and commuter rail systems that readily link commuters to our other SFU campuses in downtown Vancouver and Surrey, and to outlying communities.
Within walking distance of SFU, this budding village for 10,000 people has garnered national and international awards for being a model of sustainable and green community building. UniverCity provides a range of shops and services located along University High Street — the retail and service centre of the community. Currently, a host of retail amenities are provided in the Cornerstone, UniverCity’s first mixed-use project. Over the next year, another mixed use development, the Hub, will be completed and add additional services to students, visitors, and local residents.
