Growth at the University of BC and surrounding area

Expansion Continues
The Okanagan campus of the University of BC has grown dramatically during its first decade, more than doubling student enrolment and tripling floor space and it continues to grow. This campus is already on its second master plan as the growth of the first master plan was achieved earlier than anticipated. The new 2015 Campus Expansion plan takes the approach of building lasting relationships between people and places on campus and in the surrounding community, in addition to promoting shared learning and innovation. This plan identifies addressing future academic and research needs, student housing and associated campus services for the next two decades. 

The Surrounding Area
Growth in the surrounding areas of the UBC Okanagan Campus is also noted. The Kelowna International Airport, the Airport Business Park now including Airport Village, a commercial development with approximately 40,000 SF including Nesters Food Market grocery store, Tim Hortons and several other commercial retail stores have expanded this area.
