Driving directions to the Nanaimo Campus

Approaching from Victoria and places south of Nanaimo:

Vancouver Island University is a 90-minute drive from Victoria. From Victoria (or anywhere south of Nanaimo) take the Island highway north to Nanaimo and ensure you follow the by-pass route marked “Hwy. 19 to Parksville” that begins just south of the city ("Nanaimo Parkway" on the map). Stay on the Parkway until you reach Exit 16 and see the sign for Vancouver Island University/5th Street (first traffic light after connecting to the Parkway). Turn right and proceed downhill. Our campus is on the left. See below for parking information.

Approaching from Parksville and places north of Nanaimo:

Vancouver Island University is located in the southwestern part of the City of Nanaimo. If arriving from the north, take the Nanaimo Parkway bypass as it leaves the Island Highway just north of Nanaimo. Follow the Parkway through the Aulds Road exit, northern Jingle Pot Road exit, Northfield Road exit and the southern Jingle Pot Road exit. As the Parkway climbs the side of Mt. Benson and begins to level out, you'll come to the exit for Vancouver Island University via 5th Street. Turn left and proceed down the hill. Our campus is on the left.


For short-term, metered parking (up to two hours; 50 cents for every 15 minutes, accepts quarters, loonies and toonies only), take the 5C entrance and park in Lot F or the 5B entrance and park in Lot D. For long-term parking, take the 5B entrance and park in Lot E or Lot C (General Parking). Pay parking is in effect 24/7, and is strictly enforced. Parking permits can be bought from ticket dispensers. Dispensers accept quarters, loonies and toonies, plus Visa and MasterCard.
