A changemaker and social innovator, Royal Roads University has both a global reach and a strong sense of place. Its programs combine digital delivery, allowing students across Canada and around the world to stay connected to their communities and careers, with an unparalleled natural and historic environment for research and study. On the traditional lands of the Xwsepsum (Esquimalt) and Lkwungen (Songhees) Nations, the university campus is situated at Hatley Park, one of Canada’s most beautiful National Historic Sites and home to more than 75 years of leadership and learning: 55 years as a military college and more than 20 years as a public applied research university.
