Overview

Looking for a place to live while you study at BCIT? We're here to help!

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.

If you are interested in a tour of residence, we give full tours during the summer months from mid June - August. We may be able to show you around during the school year as well depending on avaliability. Please contact us to set up a date and time in advance.
