Quest University is located in Squamish (between Vancouver and Whistler, an hour's drive from Vancouver). Renowned as the Outdoor Recreation Capital of Canada, Squamish is a popular destination for hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing, white water rafting and scuba diving Local attractions include the Britannia Mine Museum, the West Coast Railway Heritage Park, Shannon Falls, and the Sea to Sky Gondola.

Situated at the top of a hill, the university campus offers stunning views of the Tantalus Mountains from all buildings and outdoor sitting areas/performance spaces.


Participants are accommodated either in Red Tusk (near the classroom building) or in the North and South Village residences (a 5-10 minute walk from the classrooms).

  • Red Tusk (#11 on the map):
    This residence has pairs of private bedrooms with a shared bathroom between. These are considered 'private' rooms, for which the $200 supplement would have to be paid.

  • North or South Village (#7 or #8 on map):
    These residences contain suites, most of which have three rooms: a twin bedroom with its own bathroom, a second bedroom which may have one or two beds with its own bathroom, and a central lounge.

    If the second bedroom is occupied by only one person, then it would be considered a private room and be subject to the 'private' room supplement. However, if the suite is being used by a family of three, the third person would only be charged the 'double occupancy' rate, even though s/he would be assigned a private room.

    There are a limited number of suites with three bedrooms to accommodate larger families.

Bedding and towels are supplied. The campus is fully accessible (all buildings have elevators), and rooms for persons with disabilities are available. All buildings have geothermal heating and cooling.

Standard resident rates are for shared accommodation, all meals and snacks, tuition and admission to concerts.
