A Gathering Place at Vancouver Island University will provide a special place for VIU’s aboriginal students, Services for Aboriginal Students and our community partners and will be the welcoming place for all others who attend VIU. 

The Gathering Place design has been influenced by the traditional Coast Salish pre-European contact structures.  

The ceremonial space will be approximately 1500 square feet and will be used for small gatherings and sharing of culture and traditions in an educational setting.
