Victoria, British Columbia, Canada: A beautiful place to live and learn

Canada is an international education destination well-known for its warm, welcoming and multicultural society, and British Columbia boasts natural beauty, a mild coastal climate, and outdoor recreation opportunities like no other place on earth. Victoria, the capital city of British Columbia, is a safe, laid-back city with plenty of cafes, restaurants, shopping and year-round music and art festivals, and was voted 7th Best City in the World by Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards 2016, and 2nd Best Small City in the World, Outside USA by Conde Nast 2017.

Our Campus

If our campus looks familiar, there’s a pretty good reason. With appearances in dozens of major motion pictures and TV series over the past 80 years, the Royal Roads University site has become a preferred destination for local and international film crews including X-Men, Deadpool, Smallville and Arrow.

Aside from our famous castle, RRU's campus grounds consists of over 230 hectares of parks and woods, with hiking trails and walking paths that go all the way to the Pacific Ocean, as well as gorgeous Italian, Japanese, Croquet, and Rose gardens.
