Italian Garden

The Royal Roads University campus is located within Hatley Park, one of Canada’s largest and most diverse National Historic Sites. It is located on the south end of Vancouver Island, 20 minutes from Victoria, British Columbia. Enjoy fascinating history and diversity and 565 oceanfront acres with an amazing view of the majestic Olympic Mountains in the USA.

On campus you will find old growth forests and serpentine trails mingling with formal gardens, a rare ecosystem, and a bird sanctuary on a lagoon. At the centre of it all is a magnificent castle, built in 1908 by former Premier of British Columbia and coal baron, Lord Dunsmuir. Hatley Castle is surrounded by heritage buildings that hearken back to the Royal Roads Military College era.
