CBU’s Downtown Location: Cineplex Sydney

Cape Breton University is excited to announce our new downtown location at the Cineplex Cinemas Sydney – Prince Street!

Students studying in CBU’s Post-Baccalaureate Diploma Programs (Business Management, Business Analytics, Health Care Management and Supply Chain Management) will take some of their classes in the new space, located at the heart of our community. 

Cape Breton University continues to experience significant growth, with particular demand for Post-Baccalaureate programming. This partnership will allow us to accommodate growing student enrolment, currently projected to continue until the 2024/25 academic year. Partnerships with theatres such as this are common in Canada and the locations have proven to be successful and effective learning spaces. As our programs continue to grow and expand, we remain dedicated to providing high-tech, comfortable learning environments for our students. 

Beginning in January, CBU will have access to four theatres at Cineplex Cinemas Sydney, as well as an office space next door where students can meet with faculty members, student placement officers and their program manager. Student supports will also be made available on site to ensure students have everything they need at their fingertips. 

While the majority of classes for this cohort will be held downtown, we want all CBU students to experience the excitement and community that come along with campus life.

This expansion will also generate significant economic activity for the community, with more than 1200 students in the downtown area.

All of CBU’s existing COVID-19 campus policies have been created with the health, safety and well-being of our community in mind. We will continue to make science-backed decisions and take direction and guidance from Nova Scotia’s Chief Medical Officer of Health, Dr. Robert Strang.  With this new location being considered a remote location, all current COVID-19 policies, including the Vaccination, Testing and Mask
policy will also be in effect. 


This means:

  • All students, faculty and employees must be fully vaccinated and submit proof of vaccination or have an approved exemption. 
  • Masks must be worn unless you are seated and actively eating or drinking.
