A unique partnership between UFV and the City of Abbotsford
The University of the Fraser Valley and the City of Abbotsford are undertaking a collaborative initiative that will shape the future of the UDistrict — a vibrant, enriched, and inclusive neighbourhood where creative minds live, work, play, and learn together.
UFV is a major presence at Five Corners in downtown Chilliwack
The renovation at UFV Five Corners education centre includes classrooms, a boardroom, and office space for UFV instructors and staff.
It offers a variety of courses, workshops, and programs to support the business community. Programming will focus on professional development and continuing studies, and custom courses will be designed and offered at the request of the community.
Working together to realize a long-term dream of opening a Student Union Building
The $15-million project was financed on a cost-shared basis, with UFV students providing $10 million of the funding through a $35 per semester fee that was approved in a referendum in 2008. The university provided $5 million of the funding.
