The Downtown Vancouver campus encompasses multiple facilities which lie at the heart of the city. In 2009, the Vancouver Sun called SFU’s Downtown Vancouver campus “the intellectual heart of the city.” Simon Fraser University – Surrey, on the other hand, finds itself within the centre of one of Canada’s most lively cities. Though the latter is fast-growing, this campus does offer fewer academic programs. However, SFU students are welcomed to enroll in class at any of the three campuses.
