If you take a continuing studies course from the University of the Fraser Valley in Abbotsford, chances are that it will be at UFV’s newest location.

UFV Continuing Studies has moved from the Marshall Road annex to a newly renovated space on the bottom floor of the Clearbrook library.

The Clearbrook centre provides 15,000 square feet and replaces the Marshall Road space.

UFV’s applied business technology program is also now housed at the centre along with continuing studies, and it will be used by other UFV departments for special events and seminars.

UFV held a special opening ceremony for the centre on Tuesday, Feb 7.

This new centre of learning is close to Abbotsford City Hall, The Reach gallery, Abbotsford police headquarters, shopping and restaurants, and the library.

“This new facility provides the space and state-of-the-art equipment and amenities needed for us to provide educational opportunities and community liaison right in the heart of Abbotsford,” said UFV president Mark Evered.

You can find the UFV Clearbrook centre on the bottom floor of the Clearbrook library. The official address is 32355 Veterans Way.
