Where we are located

Pearson College UWC is located along the forested shores of the Pacific Ocean at sheltered Pedder Bay, on the southernmost tip of Vancouver Island in the Province of British Columbia, Canada. Our beautiful campus is 29 km southwest of Victoria, the provincial capital. We are proud to acknowledge that we live and learn on the unceded territory of the Sc’ianew (Beecher Bay) First Nation.

Visit Campus

Before you visit

Visitors are most welcome, but to avoid disrupting classes and other activities, we advise that students who graduated in the previous year are allowed to stay overnight only on Fridays or Saturdays, subject to the availability of rooms in the Max Bell Hall. We do not encourage parents or family members to stay on campus unless in exceptional circumstances. Visiting parents are asked to find off-campus accommodation. Contact for a list of recommended accommodations.

Thinking about popping in for a visit? We’d love to see you, but as this is an active campus, we ask that you abide by some general guidelines. Call 250.391.2411 with any questions, or email

Permission to visit or stay overnight must be obtained in advance from the Dean of Students. During the first two months of the school year, when first and second-year students are getting to know each other, and during the examination period stretching from the second half of April (when more intense preparations begin) to the end of term, we generally ask that students do not invite guests to the College, or host them.
