Skeena Residence and Nechako Housing Commons are two of UBC’s latest residence projects, which will help us meet the demand for on-campus student housing and dining facilities at UBC’s Okanagan campus.
The two residences will add approximately 440 new beds for students. Nechako Housing Commons will also feature a 500-seat residence dining room, which will serve delicious and nutritious food and provide increased social and study space.
Detours & Disruptions
If you currently live on campus, or you are planning to live on campus next year, please be aware that there will be some pedestrian and vehicle traffic detours and disruptions on International Mews and in the north section of Parking Lot F as a result of these construction projects. Additionally, University Walk will be closed. Please take this situation into account, particularly on move in or move out days.
The Skeena construction site is located north & west of Purcell Residence andÂ at the north end of Nicola Residence, along International Mews. The Nechako site is located on the north side of the University Centre (south section of the Commons Field) and extends into a section of Parking Lot F.

Info for Kalamalka, Nicola and Purcell residents
Residents at Kalamalka, Nicola and Purcell should expect to hear noise from heavy equipment, industrial traffic and construction. There will also be pedestrian and vehicle traffic disruptions in the area, along with an increased level of dust. Some residents will be less affected, if their units do not face directly onto an area under construction.
UBC ensures that safe and prudent construction practices are always followed and makes every effort to minimize impact to residents and the campus community.
