Is Columbia Right for You?

A great opportunity for you to get to know us better.


Campus View Events are one of the best ways to see if Columbia is the right fit for you. This spring and summer we are bringing our View Events to you! We invite you to sign up for a Virtual View Day or an online Program Info Session (or both!) You also have the option to explore our video showcase below, or to set up a one-on-one Zoom call with a member of our friendly Admissions crew.

Schedule a One-on-One

Want a more personal meeting with a member of our Admissions team? We'd love that too! As the COVID-19 restrictions begin to ease in British Columbia, we are happy to invite you to campus for a nicely-distanced meeting and tour of campus. Or you might want to connect with one of our team by video call or phone conversation. Either way, fill out the form and the appropriate member of our team will connect with you to make a plan.
