Housing & Meals
Living on campus provides an authentic university experience. Meet new friends from around the world while staying on campus in a modern, sustainable student residence. You’ll have access to all of the great amenities available to UBC students, including hiking trails, sports fields, cafeteria, theatres and the library.
All the comforts of home…
Accommodations are single rooms, with a semi-private washroom shared between two students of the same gender. Each room has wired (Ethernet) Internet access and is furnished with a bed, linens, a desk, a chair, and a dresser.
There are also laundry facilities and accessible units if required. On each floor of the residence building there are study lounges, a reading room, a snack kitchen, and a large TV lounge.
…and three catered meals a day.
There is a growing awareness of what it means to eat sustainably, and an understanding that food matters—to our health as well as our environment.
The Summer Scholars Program provides three healthy, balanced meals per day. Please complete the dietary restrictions and allergies form that will be included in your registration package so we can accommodate your dietary needs.
