Housing Rates & Fees

Rates effective September 1, 2019 – August 31, 2020.

Rent includes wired and wireless high speed internet and hydro. Rent does not include meals plans as students are provided with a full kitchen to prepare their own meals. Telephone and cable hook-up in one’s bedroom costs extra, at the resident’s discretion.

Long-term residents (students in programs over 16 weeks in length)

Rent $665 per month
Damage deposit $300
Activity fee $64 (works out to $8 per month from September – May)
Parking $60 per month plus applicable taxes
From September – May parking is paid in full at the beginning of your stay, not monthly. Parking is limited and assigned on a first come, first served basis.

A 10% charge will apply for any rent or any other housing fee outstanding by the 15th of the month. This charge will be added directly to your BCIT account. If you are awaiting a student loan, please contact the Housing Office.

Short-term residents (students in programs under 16 weeks in length)

Rent $26.75 per night
Parking $15 per week plus applicable taxes
Parking is limited and assigned on a first come, first served basis upon arrival.


Please note

A minimum stay of one week is required to reserve a room. A week of accommodation is considered Sunday – Friday. Accommodation less than 30 days will have an additional 5% GST added onto the rent amount. Short-stay students pay more than regular full-time students because of the frequent cleaning/maintenance schedule associated with short-term stays.
