Opening Day Campus Arrival

When you arrive on campus (anytime between 9:00 am and 1:00 pm—earlier the better!), look for a tent just inside the school gates. From here, Orientation Assistants will direct you to parking, as needed, where you can unload luggage/belongings, and you will start to meet the people who will live with you in your new house. Please check in with your Houseparents at this time.

Orientation Assistants will be available to assist with unloading and moving belongings into the boarding house.

Casual dress is acceptable when arriving on campus.

Wifi Network

Students can join the Brentwood wifi network using their Brentwood login.

Travel to Brentwood

If your child is travelling to Brentwood unaccompanied, please ensure you complete the necessary documentation to coordinate logistics and communicate with the school.

For information on getting to the campus and other travel information, visit our Travel page for more information.

Local Accommodation

If you are looking for a local place to stay and things to do in the area while you get your child settled into the school, visit the Tourism Cowichan website for a list of hotels and local tourism associations.

Additional Information

Many of the questions new students and parents have regarding what to bring, how to dress, and what is required before you arrive can be answered by referring to the Student Handbook.
