Our campus is at the heart of small-town Vernon. We are close to everything, including accommodation, coffee shops, restaurants, cinemas, natural foods stores and groceries, recreation centre, library, banks, performing arts and the beautiful Polson Park. Because of Vernon's small size, student accommodation can easily be found within walking, biking, bus or driving distance. Classroom windows offer views of the surrounding town and Okanagan hills.
The 13,500 square foot facility has three main areas:
Student Centre and Classrooms The student centre includes a relaxed and interactive setting with a kitchen, eating area, comfortable lounge and lockers. Surrounding this are the practical and academic classrooms, as well as a consultation room, photocopy room, locker area and study room with computers. The computers are available to students for research.
Student Health Clinic and Practicum Facility The clinic and practicum facility starts with a comfortable waiting area and reception for patients. Students gather in the clinic meeting room for guidance from supervisors and to review patient files. Students greet their patient in the waiting area and escort them to one of the 12 treatment rooms - ten dry treatment rooms and two wet treatment rooms - equipped with controlled music and lighting, massage table, a sink, and heat lamps and showers in the wet room. Students with hydro therapy patients make use of the splash room and infrared sauna.
Administration Area The administration area holds the main reception, staff and administration offices, staff room and the Anita Patrick Memorial library for staff and students.
