Activities & Events

Summer is a time of wonderful possibilities for learning, growing, and interacting with others. Our Summer Programs include a variety of activities that enhance your classroom learning and provide an opportunity to meet other “pilgrims along the way.”

Evening Public Lectures

Evening Public Lectures are a hallmark of Regent’s Summer schedule. These lectures provide an opportunity to hear from a number of Summer Programs faculty outside of the classroom. See our Public Lectures page for the full schedule. All lectures begin at 7:30 pm.

Atrium Information Desk

Our Info Desk is staffed with friendly and knowledgeable volunteers. Here, you can browse a wealth of information about Regent College, courses, activities, and the greater Vancouver area.


Chapel is foundational to our life at Regent College and you are warmly invited to participate. In the Spring Session Chapel is held at 11:15 am Mondays and Thursdays. In the Summer Session Chapel is held daily 11:15am. Many students and faculty have found that the mingling of testimony and praise, exposition, and intercession creates an atmosphere of rich spiritual vitality.


Our catering team prepares nutritious and delectable dishes every Monday and Thursday in Spring Session and Summer Session at a cost of $5.00 for a complete meal. You can’t get a better deal in Vancouver! And the communal lunchtime is a wonderful opportunity to share a meal with classmates and professors.

The Well Coffee Bar

Located at the entrance to the Bookstore, this Regent alumnus-owned coffee bar offers a fine selection of espresso drinks and teas, as well as various snack and lunch menu items. The daily soup is a tasty alternative when lunch is not served.

Connecting with Faculty

Each week throughout Spring and Summer, we take a break from the classrooms to spend a little time getting to know the faculty through coffee and dialogue events, roundtable discussions, and other informal talks.

Prayer Retreats

We organize a one-day Saturday retreat in the Summer Session to give you an opportunity to nurture your relationship with God away from the hustle and bustle of classes and activities.

Summer Prayer Retreat: "Examining Our Lives by the Light of God’s Grace: A Contemplative Prayer Retreat"
Saturday, July 26 at 9:00am - 3:30 pm with Susan Phillips.

Postmodern Urban Spaces: A City Tour - July 12

This popular bus tour, Postmodern Urban Spaces, with Dr. David Ley, Professor of Urban Geography at UBC, takes you through Vancouver’s downtown and inner city districts and emphasizes the changing social values of postmodern culture. It's an occasion to gain a deeper understanding of how to read cities by their urban landscape, using Vancouver as a model.

The John Richard Allison Library

One of the great gifts of Regent College is the beautiful John Richard Allison Library located on the lower level. Leather chairs and well-equipped study carrels are woven in and through the stacks and original works of art, all well lit by generous skylights. Once you have registered and paid course fees,you are eligible for a free Allison Library card, valid for one year from the day of membership request.

The Lookout Gallery

Regent's art gallery is a quiet respite from the bustle of the atrium while Summer Programs are in session. The gallery showcases the work of an ever-expanding roster of local and international artists who are not afraid to address questions of faith in their art.

The Regent Bookstore

The Regent Bookstore is considered by most Regent students to be the area of greatest temptation at Regent College; it carries one of the most extensive selection of books of any theological bookstore in North America. The Regent Bookstore also offers CDs and DVDs of faculty lectures and an audio selection of various Regent courses. Be sure to leave space in your suitcase to bring home the treasures you find here!
