Along withÂ UBC, Student Housing has implemented plans to provide the best possible accommodation for our residents given COVID-19 challenges and the re-start advice and recommendations provided by our Provincial Health Authorities.Â Health and safety remain our first priorities, and we continue to work closely with the Ministry of Advanced Education, Skills and Training, and with other post-secondary institutions within BC to ensure our plans are aligned with health and safety guidelines and other emerging and leading practices.
