Welcome to the Kelowna campus!

Although this year may look a little different than most, we can't wait to welcome you to the Kelowna campus for the 2021 Winter semester! Take a look at the warm welcome from regional dean, Philip Ashman, and then browse through this page for information about the campus and events we have planned for you this fall.

We respectfully acknowledge that our campus is located on the traditional and unceded territory of the Syilx Okanagan people. 

Drive-thru welcome

The Kelowna team is excited to welcome you for a drive-through event Monday, Jan. 11 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.  Sign up for a  time slot to pick up a welcome bag full of goodies and a bowl of hot chili to go!

You must register for your time slot, as space is limited due to COVID-19 capacity restrictions! (Note: OC is monitoring public health orders closely. If circumstances change that will impact the event, registrants will receive an email with updates.) Also, for everyone's safety, the following health and safety procedures must be adhered to:

  • Students MUST stay in their vehicle during the drive-thru event
  • Please ensure you are wearing a mask when you open your window to receive your swag bag and chili
  • Absolutely no walk-ups allowed - sorry 

Registrations are now CLOSED due to capacity. Thanks for signing up - looking forward to seeing you there!
