Richmond Road Campus
The beautiful Richmond Road campus is home to our Middle and Senior Schools as well as our purpose-built boarding houses.
The Richmond Road campus is a secure 17 acre site in the heart of Victoria, BC. We benefit from being located in a quiet, tree-lined suburb, which is close to shops, restaurants and all the amenities of a city.
The campus was originally the site of University School (founded in 1906), one of the schools that amalgamated to form St. Michaels University School in 1971. Today, it is both a traditional and modern purpose-built campus for our Middle, Senior and boarding students. It is also the location of the school's administration.
Buildings and Spaces on Campus
The most recognizable building on campus is School House, which was originally built in 1910. It now sits alongside modern purpose-built facilities like the Monkman Athletic Complex and the Schaffter Hall music building. Our newest building is the Sun Centre, opened in 2018. The Sun Centre includes our student commons and dining hall called Graves Hall, which has an amazing vaulted ceiling.
If you join us for boarding school, you will also live on the Richmond Road campus in one of our specially designed boarding houses.
You will also find lots of green spaces on campus. We have four full-size grass pitches and lots of spaces for students to relax outside and enjoy the British Columbia sunshine.

Campus Master Plan
From the Floreat strategic plan, the school identified several facilities projects. The Campus Master Plan outlines a vision, guiding principles, and direction for future development of the Richmond Road campus.
The heritage and modern facilities at SMUS provide the ideal setting for a wide range of events such as conferences, corporate retreats, sporting events, weddings, theatrical performances and movie productions.Learn more
