Living in Vancouver

Finding a Place to Live

UBC Housing has several year round residences which are suitable for graduate students. St John’s College and Green College are official graduate residences, which run their own application process. If you do want to live on campus then it’s best to apply as early as possible.

You might find living where you work a little claustrophobic. If so, there are plenty of suites and apartments off campus. Prices start from $400 per month for a shared housing.
