Until 2005, Okanagan College was known as Okanagan University College. However, the “University” has been dropped from the College’s name as the University of British Columbia’s new campus in the Okanagan has assumed most of the university-level programs in the region. The College has campuses in Kelowna, Penticton, Salmon Arm, and Vernon.
