Campbell River

Ǧəlakasla NIC respectfully acknowledges we operate within the unceded traditional territory of the Wei Wai Kum, We Wai Kai and Kwiakah First Nations.

The Campbell River campus is located at 1685 South Dogwood St. and shares its location with Timberline Secondary. The shared location helps to ease the transition for students as they move from high school into post-secondary. It also provides opportunities for high school students to begin their Trades careers while still in high school, through the Youth Train in Trades program. The Campbell River campus is also home to the Third Course Bistro and the Centre for Applied Research, Technology and Innovation (CARTI).

Getting Here

NIC’s Campbell River campus is on one of the main north-south thoroughfares in Campbell River, making the location easily accessible. It is accessible by vehicle, bike and is served by BC Transit. Learn more about Campbell River.

Campus map


Parking is free at the Campbell River campus. NIC has designated parking for students or employees. Please observe signage and only park in appropriate areas.

Accessible parking

Accessible parking is available. Please display a valid accessible parking permit.


At present, there are no student residences. NIC students typically live with a roommate, rent an apartment, a house, or a room. Below are some suggestions about how to approach finding a place to live.

Living with a student roommate

If you would like to live with another student, you can search for a roommate through the local Craigslist or newspaper. You can also put up a notice on the local college bulletin board or in coffee shops when you arrive.

Renting an apartment, house or room

If you prefer to live in an independent rental, such as an apartment or a house, there are several ways to find one. Check out the local listings through Craigslist or newspaper. Rentals are also posted on bulletin boards on campus.

Short-term Accommodations

Most students secure accommodation before they arrive because it’s generally easier in advance. When it’s not possible to get living arrangements organized before arrival – or for short term courses - students may need short term accommodation. Generally housing boards are the best option for this sort of accommodation.

Wireless Network Access

Wifi Network access is available for employees and students at NIC through two networks: “NIC-WIFI” and “Eduroam”. For more information on network access for students, please contact Student Technical Services.
