SFU was designed by Arthur Erikson and is reputed to be world renowned for its architecture. I think the best thing about SFU, apart from the learning that can be gleaned there, is the fact that it is on the top of a mountain, surrounded by trails. It is a wonderful place to get an education--much smaller than UBC and, consequently more intimate, but the "award winning architecture" is utterly depressing.

Some of the best views of the Vancouver area can be had from the viewpoint at SFU.The campus sits atop Burnaby Mountain in the Vancouver suburb of Burnaby.From the parking lot you can see all the way to the southern Gulf Islands and Vancouver Island itself on a clear day The viewpoint is easily accessible by car or bus.I don't know anything else about SFU itself..but Burnaby mountain has some great bike trails.

Tours can be arranged but if you are just visiting then take a walk through the Convocation Mall to the Academic Quadrangle. The view looking back over to Vancouver is great. The whole area is pretty easy to get around and there is visitor parking. The one thing that many people do not know about is the view from Burnaby Mountain Park that is at the end of Centennial Way. Centennial Way runs off Burnaby Mountain Parkway. From here you will get a great view of downtown Vancouver and also Indian Arm.
