Apply for student housing online

You are eligible to apply for long-stay accommodation at BCIT Student Housing if you have been accepted into a full-time, cohort-based BCIT program of 16 weeks or longer.

Residence accommodation is limited and not guaranteed. BCIT's long-stay housing operation is geared primarily to students in programs running from September to May, however vacancies may occur throughout the year for those students whose programs start at other times of year.

The deadline to apply for the fall term (September) is June 1st. If you are accepted to your program after June 1st you may still apply to live in residence, though you will be added to our waitlist. Once your application is received by the Housing Office, you will receive an email confirming the status of your application.

If you are having issues logging into the online application form or need to make changes to your application form, please contact the Housing Office with your BCIT student number. Please only submit one application per person.

On-campus housing

BCIT housing

The residence is situated on the Burnaby campus, just a short walk away from classes. It's home to 333 residents in seven low-rise, split-level houses. Each house consists of a townhouse-style block, where 12 students live together. Each resident has a private room with shared kitchen and cooking facilities, living/dining room, washrooms and laundry facilities. In your application you may request to live in an all-female, all-male or co-ed suite.

Each bedroom is comfortably furnished with a bed, desk, chair, dresser, bookshelf, desk lamp and closet.

Each house has a Resident Advisor (RA), who is there to organize social events and activities, provide advice and counseling, and be on hand in case of emergency. The RA is your "go to" resource in residence.

Rent includes wired and wireless Internet at no extra cost. It does not include a meal plan.

Off-campus housing

The Housing Office provides students with free access to comprehensive listings of off-campus accommodation available in the community. A listing of long-term off-campus accommodation (e.g. more than three to four months) is available online. Listings of short-term accommodations can be emailed to you upon request.

BCIT does not assume any responsibility for agreements made between students and landlords.

Family housing

BCIT does not have residence accommodation for couples or families. The off-campus housing service includes listings appropriate for families.
