Will student residences be open?

Will student residences be open?

Yes. UBC Student Housing will continue to accommodate upper-year and graduate students in our Winter Session (September to April) residences on both campuses and year-round residences in Vancouver. UBC Student Housing also plans to provide Winter Session accommodation for eligible first-year residents in all first-year residence communities beginning this fall, 2021.

Upper-year students who have applied for Winter Session and/or year-round residence should continue to monitor their waitlist numbers as we will continue to send offers, based on availability. First-year students who are eligible for the First Year Guarantee will receive an update regarding their housing application in mid-June.

We recognize that many of our undergraduate students will be entering their second year, but will be part of the campus community for the first time. We have given significant consideration to this unique situation, and while we do not have the capacity to provide student housing this fall term for all second-year students we have taken steps to increase their likelihood of being offered housing.
