Experience community life here with fellow UBC undergraduate students. Throughout the year, there are cookies and cocoa nights, special events and weekly gatherings along with an annual retreat where friendships can be fostered and flourish. The Resident Ambassadors also work with our Dean of Residence to enhance the resident experience.

We are also passionate about discipleship and spiritual growth. Finding your identity is something that is so important, but seldom done. We invite you to journey with fellow residents by participating in our year-long practicum called The Identity Lab. For  two hours once a week, students would meet with the Dean of Residence for a variety of activities all designed to help students discover and live out their core identity in Christ.

Our 40 dorm rooms are furnished with either a queen-sized or twin-sized bed (4 twins available). All rooms are single occupancy, complete with a queen / single bed, desk, chair, desk lamp, dresser, floor lamp, closet, and private washroom. There is a telephone landline in each room, which students can use to make free local and toll free calls. There is also WiFi access throughout the building. Each room is supplied with an ethernet cable to plug in directly or to set up one’s own wireless router.

*Wheelchair-accessible rooms are available
