Along with UBC, Student Housing has implemented plans to provide the best possible accommodation for our residents given COVID-19 challenges and the fact that most classes will be held online during Fall 2020. This website contains useful FAQs and resources, and is being updated regularly following advice from provincial and federal health agencies.
Health and safety remains our first priority and we continue to work closely with the Ministry of Advanced Education, Skills and Training and with other post-secondary institutions within B.C. to ensure our plans are aligned with health and safety guidelines.
Residence for Term 1 (Fall)
Winter Session Residence (First Year)
Although many first-year classes will be accessible online, we will have limited residence options. We recognize some first-year students may need to be on campus due to academic requirements and/or personal needs. As long as space is available, we will provide housing accommodation for qualifying students who are required to be on campus. Amenities and services will be adjusted to abide by health authority guidelines.
If you need to live on-campus, please click here and complete First Year Residence Eligibility Application by Saturday, June 13, 2020.Â
You may continue to submit applications to be considered based on availability. Applications submitted by the June 13 deadline will be prioritized.
Winter Session Residence (Upper Year): Ongoing provision until further notice
UBC Student Housing will provide Winter Session accommodation for upper-year and graduate students. Residence offers for September occupancy will be distributed by email beginning later in June. Once received, students will follow our normal protocol and will have a few days to accept and pay the first instalment of residence fees.
