It’s hard to imagine a more idyllic rural college setting. Perched on a plateau above the confluence of the Kootenay and Columbia rivers, Castlegar’s Selkirk College Campus offers a 360-degree view of the geographical wonders of the West Kootenay.
Home to many of the 60 programs Selkirk College offers in its multi-campus approach, the Castlegar location is rich with walking paths, river views and historical significance.
Winter, spring, summer or fall... Kekuli House on the Castlegar Campus offers amazing views.
There are more than 18 kilometres of year-round walking trails on the campus which are rated easy/intermediate. They include interpretive walks along both rivers and the opportunity to view a variety of wildlife. Amenities in the area include washrooms, picnic tables and benches.
The campus is the site of great historical importance for the West Kootenay region. On the edge of the campus lands, the Mir Centre for Peace sits perched on the bluff. The centre is housed in a restored early 20th Century Doukhobor communal dwelling and the land on which it is situated is a place of importance to the Indigenous peoples of the region. There is also an arbour and traditional smoke house situated nearby.
Kekuli House is the student residence during the fall and winter semester. It is available for short and long term stays during spring and summer. The full-service residence is centrally located on the campus with stellar views of the river. It is within close proximity of world-class mountain biking, incredible fishing, gorgeous mountain golf and a wealth of other outdoor activities.
