Campus Events

SFU’s Vancouver campus hosts multiple welcome events throughout the year to welcome students, faculty and staff to each new semester at SFU! Events combine fun activities and games, prize draws and free swag, and information about services and resources available to you at the Vancouver campus.

Welcome Back Community BBQ and SFUReady

Date: Thursday, September 12
Woodward's Atrium, 149 W. Hastings St., Vancouver, BC

Please join us for the 11th Annual SFU Vancouver Welcome Back Community BBQ!

As part of SFU’s Month of Welcome, all SFU students, staff, faculty, and community members are invited to join us for:

  • A delicious free lunch and snacks
  • Entertainment
  • A great opportunity to connect with the SFU community and our neighbours and local businesses
  • Valuable resources and information from the various SFU departments and vendors who will be onsite as part of SFUReady (formerly known as the SFU Services Fair). Whether you're in your first term at SFU or further along in your studies, you’ll find something valuable and informative at SFUReady.
  • And more!

Please join us (rain or shine!) for the kick off to a great Fall semester at SFU Vancouver!
