About our Terrace campus


The Terrace campus is thirty acres of beautifully landscaped grounds nestled in the surrounding mountain ranges and approximately five kilometres from downtown. The Terrace campus is located on the traditional unceded territory of the Kitsumkalum First Nation. 

With a multitude of walking and biking trails and public transit nearby, downtown is easily accessible to students living on and off campus. For on campus housing we have a brand new building named Wii Gyemsiga Siwilaawksat, which translates to "where learners are content or comfortable", that houses up to 112 students. 

Featuring a full service cafeteria with food prepared by students and professional chefs of our culinary programs, the facility is open for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Many special events are also hosted here throughout the year. The Cedar Café is also located at the Terrace campus and offers daily food and coffee specials and ample studying space.

With a recent renewal of our trades training building our students have modern facilities, increased study space and technological improvements to prepare for in-demand careers in the trades. Waap Amgam (House of Cedar) also hosts an airy, light commons area with added study space, breakout rooms and funky furniture. You’ll also find the campus library there.

The campus yurt is located in the middle of the campus courtyard and serves as a teaching lab and innovative space for our classes and meeting space for our campus and wider community.

At the south end of the campus stands Waap Galts’ap, the campus longhouse. The Longhouse is primarily used for student-centered and cultural activities and there are various events hosted there throughout the year.

We enrich the student experience with our unique programs and adventurous delivery. The First Nations Fine Arts program located at the Freda Diesing studio is the only one of its kind in Canada where artists focus on the northern style of West Coast First Nations art. Multiple intensive summer field school programs combine a full semester of learning into just a few weeks where students experience northwest BC’s incredible history, culture and environment. Experiential learning really does bring theory to life.

University courses, health and social services, business, trades training, fine arts, upgrading, continuing education, contract training and workforce certifications. Study nursing, environmental management, business, social work, welding, indigenous culture and so much more. Coast Mountain College provides quality education and a wide variety of post-degree diplomas, associate degrees, Red Seal Trades training, diplomas and certificates. Learn more about our programs and courses.

Students also take advantage of many of our adventurous international degree partnerships and study abroad after just one or two years at Coast Mountain College.

Building Names 

The names of all the buildings on the Terrace campus are in the Ts'msyen Sm’algyax language. Each name was carefully chosen by language holders and knowledge keepers from the Kitsumkalum First Nation of Waap Widi Waay, as the Terrace campus sits on their territory. The words chosen for the building names have cultural significance for the Ts'msyen people. It is very important for building relationships to learn and use these Sm’algyax building names.
