The RRU campus sprawls over 260 hectares of beautiful parkland, where you can walk or bike near gorgeous views of the Juan de Fuca straight.  The campus also houses majestic Hatley Castle which houses the administrative offices and has been host to weddings and several feature films and movies of the week.

Royal Roads has provided an education to working professionals since 1940.  Canada’s Department of National Defense owned and operated the Royal Roads Military College (RRMC) that provided a military education initially to reserve officers in World War II, and then members of the army, navy, and air force. In 1975 RRMC was given the right to grant degrees with the first bachelor’s degree being earned in 1977.
