Who we are + what we do...
Great Northern Way Campus Trust is jointly owned by UBC, SFU, BCIT and Emily Carr University. It was set up in 2001, following a gift from Finning of an 18-acre site on the False Creek Flats. The Trust has two principal activities:
  1. The operation of The Centre for Digital Media, which offers a Masters of Digital Media graduate degree, jointly operated and accredited by all four partners.

    Learn more about the Centre for Digital Media and the Master of Digital Media program.


  2. The revitalization of its land parcel to bring together businesses, academia and the general community into an emerging district for the digital and creative sectors. This district is also the future home of a relocated Emily Carr University, as well as the location of a potential SkyTrain station on the future UBC line.
