Living at BCIT Student Housing is more than just a place to live during the academic year. It is a way of life and a home away from home. The Housing department strives to provide you with a safe and comfortable living space in an environment that is conducive to your academic success and personal growth.

The real benefit is living and learning with your suitemates and friends. Student Housing provides opportunities to share experiences with people from different backgrounds, participate in activities, and become involved in campus life all while developing lifelong friendships. Sharing with other suitemates requires cooperation and communication, but it can be an enriching, fun and memorable experience.

BCIT Student Housing is located on the Burnaby Campus, adjacent to the sports field and campus recreation facilities. If you are looking for resources to support your off-campus housing search, BCIT Housing also offers resources including tips and tricks, listing services and other valuable information.
