About Camosun

Inspiring life-changing learning

Welcome to Camosun College

Camosun College campuses are located on the traditional territories of the Lkwungen and W̱SÁNEĆ peoples. We acknowledge their welcome and graciousness to the students who seek knowledge here.

Camosun College is located in beautiful Victoria, British Columbia. Our two campuses, Lansdowne and Interurban, serve approximately 19,000 learners a year in certificate, diploma, bachelor's degree and continuing education programs.


Largest public college in British Columbia


2 campuses in Victoria: Interurban/Lansdowne

Diverse student population

Each year Camosun welcomes over 1,100 Indigenous students from First Nations, Métis, and Inuit groups, and over 1,600 international students from more than 80 countries.

The college welcomed its first students in 1971 and adopted the name “Camosun”, a local Lkwungen (Songhees) First Nation name meaning “where different waters meet and are transformed.” Today, Camosun College offers over 160 innovative programs to help meet the needs of students and communities in Victoria and beyond.

Wide range of programs

Our education offerings include university transfer and applied degree programs; career and trades training; upgrading and preparatory programs; and continuing education. Camosun College has earned an outstanding reputation for teaching excellence—we’re proud of our faculty, staff and students, and the fact that we provide one of Canada’s best learning experiences.

We’re large enough to provide great services and facilities for a vibrant campus environment on beautiful Vancouver Island, yet small enough to offer students the individual support, care and attention not found in most post-secondary institutions.

Impact on the community

Our impact as a college extends well beyond our highly skilled, job-ready graduates. We provide contract training opportunities for local business; research, innovation and prototyping services for industry; and well-trained co-op students for employers.

With over 1,100 employees and an annual budget of $126 million, Camosun is one of our community’s top employers and generates close to $1 billion in economic impact in our province every year.
