Partnering with the City of Duncan, the District of North Cowichan, Cowichan Valley Regional District and the Cowichan Valley School District; Vancouver Island University will relocate its Cowichan Campus to become part of "Cowichan Place", located at 2011 University Way, Duncan, BC, V9L 0C7. This new development will be centrally-located at the old Fairgrounds site in Duncan and will focus on education, recreation and culture in the Cowichan Valley. Each partner will have access to a much wider range of facilities than would normally be possible on individual sites. This major development will replace two smaller facilities, which are currently home to the Cowichan Campus.
