About SFU Surrey

In 2002, Simon Fraser University (SFU) occupied a beta space within the Central City mall complex and celebrated the grand opening of its first campus building in 2006. By design, the Bing Thom award-winning building placed the university on top of the mall, making the boundaries between the campus and community porous.

Today, SFU Surrey’s footprint, now over 600,000 square feet of campus space, continues to expand within and beyond Surrey’s downtown core, transforming the city’s landscape and contributing to the region’s development.

The Surrey campus offers more than 30 undergraduate and graduate degree programs and continuing education courses, serving over 8,000 full and part-time students and is a world-class leader in health, sustainable energy, creative technologies, research and innovation.

SFU Surrey acknowledges the unceded traditional territories on which our campus locations reside, including Kwantlen, Katzie, Semiahmoo, Kwikwetlem, Qayqayt and Tsawwassen First Nations.
