Residence & housing

Living in residence makes it easy for you to meet new people, live in a study-oriented atmosphere, get help for academic and personal challenges, and be part of all that UBC and its surrounding neighbourhoods have to offer.

Student Housing and Hospitality Services oversees nine residence areas at the Okanagan campus. Most first year undergraduate students are placed in Cassiar, Kalamalka, Nicola, Purcell, Valhalla, Skeena, Nechako, or Similkameen Place—residences with single furnished rooms, vibrant common areas for snacking and socializing, and plenty of space for quiet study time. Based on availability, some new students will be assigned to suite-style residences at Monashee Place or Lower/Upper Cascades where upper year students and some graduate students also live.
