About Sprott Shaw College - Nanaimo:



Welcome to our Nanaimo Campus! Our campus is located in the heart of downtown Nanaimo on beautiful Vancouver Island. We enjoy a forested mountain backdrop and are minutes from the popular Nanaimo seawalk and Swy-a-Lana Lagoon.

The Nanaimo campus is an active part of our community through our yearly food drives, fundraisers, hiring fairs, parades and Vancouver Island Exhibition.

We are proud of every last student who ‘rings that bell’ and would like to congratulate all who achieved their goals.

Student life can be fun and rewarding as well as productive! Holidays are celebrated, exceptional students and staff are recognized, accomplishments honored and games are played!
