It's important not only to work hard, but also to have fun and make the most of your post-secondary experience. That's why we offer these services and opportunities to help you get the most from your time at BCIT.
Our on-campus housing is located on the Burnaby Campus, adjacent to the sports field and campus recreation facilities. We also offer, in partnership with the My Ideal Home Network, comprehensive listings of off-campus accommodation including support for short-stay, apprenticeship and international students.
At BCIT there are dozens of recreational activities to keep you fit and energized. Through Recreation Services you can join an intramural league, play drop-in sports, spend time on the climbing wall, or make use of the weight machines, free weights and cardio equipment in the Fit Pit. There are also lots of special programs, equipment rentals, and even discount passes to local attractions for BCIT Students.
The Library at BCIT is more than just a collection of books. They offer a host of services and resources to help you study, collaborate, and hone your skills. Be sure to check out the EhPod. It's a late night study space open until 3:00 a.m. for when you need to burn the midnight oil.
Find the full list of services for students on the Library website.
