New Surrey college campus to take shape at City Centre 5
LARK GROUP — Lark Group and ICT Group are partnering with Western Community College at the Health and Technology District in Surrey on student housing and an extended campus at the City Centre 5 area of the district.

SURREY, B.C. – A new Surrey college campus will soon be home to hundreds of students.

An announcement from Lark Group said the firm and ICT Group’s Health and Technology District in Surrey is partnering with Western Community College (WCC) on a project that will feature more than 500 student and faculty residential housing units along with an expanded campus site at City Centre 5, the district’s latest development.  

“We are blazing a trail in B.C.’s business and innovation landscape with the continuing expansion and accelerated momentum of Surrey’s Health and Technology District. The incredible demand for health, office, education space, and now student accommodations, as Surrey becomes B.C.’s largest city, has propelled us to accelerate the construction of our City Centre 5 building, with City Centre 6-9 already in the planning stages,” said Lark Group CEO Kirk Fisher in a statement.

“Not only are we igniting Surrey’s innovation, health care and business landscapes, we’re creating access to local academic opportunities for future generations.”

The WCC campus at City Centre 5 features potential short term housing space for local health care institutions as well as a café and large dining hall, resident support offices, a multipurpose room, an Indigenous-focused reflection space, laundry facilities, student study, lounge and kitchen area and bike storage spaces. 

“Recognizing the challenges many students face in securing suitable accommodation, we are pioneering efforts to provide housing facilities for 500 students and faculty. As the first private institution in Surrey to tackle this issue head-on, we reaffirm our commitment to student success and well-being. By prioritizing access to safe and supportive housing, we ensure that all who come through our doors have the opportunity to pursue their dreams with confidence and peace of mind,” WCC president Gurpal Dhaliwal added.

WCC also has an existing presence within the district in City Centre 2 with their Surrey Board of Trade collaboration and the Surrey Technology and Skills Centre.

The City Centre 5 building is currently under construction and is slated for completion in Q3 2028.
