Based in Prince George, with a beautiful site in the hills overlooking the city of 80,000, UNBC has stunning architecture, and state of the art teaching and learning facilities, and is poised for a period of growth and innovation. Its 4,276 students are engaged in a variety of studies, from arts and sciences to forestry, nursing, management, and now medicine with the Northern Medical Program. The University prides itself on reaching outside of its core campus and offers many programs in regional centers throughout northern BC.
The UNBC Library offers state-of-the-art researching technology in an attractive four-storey Library featuring an impressive wood and light-filled atrium, comprehensive archives, and library holdings reaching 700,000 items.
