Born in 1965, SFU has become Canada's leading comprehensive university with vibrant campuses in British Columbia's largest municipalities — Vancouver, Burnaby and Surrey — and deep roots in partner communities throughout the province and around the world.Located in Canada on British Columbia's west coast and named for an early explorer, Simon Fraser University opened on September 9, 1965 with 2,500 students.Noted Canadian architects Arthur Erickson and Geoffrey Massey designed the original Burnaby Mountain campus to foster interdisciplinary contact between students and researchers. That same openness and desire to innovate informs SFU’s current vision: to be Canada's most community-engaged research university.Now boasting three distinctive campuses, 30,000 students, 6,500 faculty and staff, and 130,000 alumni, SFU has matured into one of the world’s leading teaching and research universities.Consistently ranked among Canada’s top comprehensive universities and named to the Times Higher Education list of 100 world universities under 50, SFU is also the first Canadian member of the National Collegiate Athletic Association, the world’s largest college sports association.
