Simon Fraser University (SFU) opened on September 9, 1965. Taking only 30 months to grow from the idea stage into an almost-completed campus with 2,500 students, it was dubbed the "Instant University". It was named after the explorer Simon Fraser.

Just over 40 years later SFU has over 25,000 students and 90,000 alumni, and more than 700 tenure-track faculty. The original campus has grown into three vibrant campuses in Burnaby, Vancouver and Surrey and SFU's reputation has grown into one of innovative teaching, research, and community outreach.

Its web site is at http://www.sfu.ca See http://www.sfu.ca/onlineservices/index.html for SFU Online.

SFU is a member of AUCC.
