Welcome to the KPU Richmond Virtual Open House!
There’s so much for you to discover.

As Canada’s only polytechnic university, we’re home to many programs and courses you can’t find at other institutions. Join us for demos and presentations from faculty and staff to learn more and pick up some cool tips and tricks along the way.

Want to tour the campus? You can! Take a virtual tour from the safety and comfort of home at your leisure. Explore classrooms, labs, workshops and more without having to leave the couch.

Hop into today’s live Q&A with the Future Students’ Office or KPU International if you have questions about KPU or you’re ready to apply!

Wondering how a Virtual Open House works? Our Virtual Info Booth is open and we’re happy to walk you through it!

Finally, enter to win one of two prizes of $500 in free tuition, or a pair of AirPods!
