Are you talking about Vancouver Island University or University of British Colombia?

University of British Columbia

The University of British Columbia at Vancouver is in Vancouver, on the mainland.

Awesome, is Vancouver island urban or more rural-like.

Likely much less rural than a lot of mainland Canada. If you’re hanging around the university, its not very rural.
If you’re considering Canadian schooling, also consider University of Victoria.

@The_Compassionate_Heretic Why Victoria? I’ve only head high praises of U of BC

Outside Victoria, Vancouver Island gets very rural and even quite rugged wilderness.

The University of Victoria seems to be a good school, has a nice campus, and is in the eastern outskirts of Victoria on Vancouver island, so a pleasant but semi-isolated place. I think either place, or Carnegie Mellon east of Vancouver, would be good places to go to school. All are good schools and have nice campuses in nice places.

What the fuck is University of Vancouver? I’ve lived here for 19 years and have failed to miss this non existant university.
