We recommend searching for off-campus housing.
- Places4Students and Castanet are great resources, and if you’re hoping to be within walking distance to campus, you may want to start looking in the Academy Hill neighbourhood firsts.
- Next up: check out the UBC Okanagan Off-campus Housing Guide here. This is a step-by-step process designed to support your search for off-campus accommodation. There are some great links, resources, and tips on how to structure your search and how to avoid pitfalls.
- At the same time, you can contact the Off-campus Housing Ambassador directly. UBCOâ€™s Off-campus Housing Ambassador is in place to support newâ€“toâ€“campus students and help them in their transition to the Kelowna Community. You can book an appointment them directly atÂ firstname.lastname@example.org.
Unfortunately, the Housing office is not able to receive any items sent for students prior to move-in day. If you are sending or ordering a package, please make sure that it arrives no sooner than your move-in day. Linen packages ordered through Campus Linens are accepted.
