About Royal Roads University

We learn, work, and live on the traditional lands of the Xwsepsum (Esquimalt) and Lekwungen (Songhees) ancestors and families who have lived here for thousands of years. This land has been part of the fabric of the life of Indigenous communities long before Hatley Castle was built, and it will belong to the future. It is with gratitude that we now learn and work here, where the past, present, and future of Indigenous and non-Indigenous students, faculty, and staff come together.

Located in one of Canada’s most beautiful National Historic Sites, Royal Roads University has a long history of excellence. In 2015, we celebrated 75 years of leadership and learning - 55 years as a military college and 20 years as a public applied for research university. 

We understand the needs and aspirations of our students, and we’ve created options to deliver an educational experience that fits your lifestyle. Our cohort model features group-based course work, providing a resource of like-minded peers for you to share, challenge, and grow with throughout your program. Even after graduation, these groups continue to support your aspirations to ensure your life changing experience with us has enabled not only professional transformation but a personal one as well.

What time do the classes start at Royal Roads University?

Nauzet Sanz

Well, it depends upon the course you are pursuing. Generally, classes begin at 9 am in morning.


It depends upon the course you are pursuing. Generally, classes begin at 9 am in the morning and end at 5 pm. But there are some courses where students are expected to come at 8 am because the class begins with the discussion of the previous day's lecture. Even though there is no strict rule about timings, you should be careful about them since, if you are late for the class, you will be having an awkward situation in front of your teacher.
