  • Located in the well-established residential neighbourhood known as Harewood. An abundance of single and multi-family residential, schools and other neighbourhood-oriented commercial uses exist within the vicinity of the Plaza.
  • The Malaspina campus of Vancouver Island University (formerly Malaspina University-College) is located only 5 blocks west of University Village and currently has a student population of 14,600 full-time and part-time students. The renovation of University Village has generated greater interest from students, staff and faculty at the Malaspina campus.
  • Recent Renovation: Facades have been upgraded, as well as other key elements of the building. The intention was to improve the overall appearance, ambiance, animation and activity of University Village. Re-orientation of the Shopping Centre was done so that it would provide a dominant frontage along Fifth Street.
