COVID-19 update

BCIT Student Housing has had to adapt to meet the changing demands presented by the global COVID-19 pandemic. The health and safety of our students and staff remains our top priority. We have implemented a number of changes to our services to support health and safety, including significant reduction in our occupancy and the frequency of occupancy changes per suite. These changes have resulted in the need for us to temporarily suspend all short-term housing reservations and applications for accommodation between August 2020 – May 2021.

Notification Waitlist

This decision is necessary to temporarily address the current COVID-19 public health guidelines. We will continually monitor the situation and reassess as needed. If you would like to be contacted in the case of any future availability, please email with full name, student number, phone number, program name and level, program start date, program end date, and request to be added to our notification waitlist.

You are eligible to live in short-stay accommodation at BCIT Student Housing if you’ve been accepted into a full-time BCIT program that is 12 weeks or shorter. All apprentice and short stay accommodation is co-ed. Please note that a minimum stay is 5 nights.

Check in is only available on the Sunday (or holiday Monday) before your program starts, between 12:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. You must check out by 12:00 p.m. on the final date of your program. No extensions are available.

How to apply:

Apprentice and short stay housing is subject to availability. Once you know the start and end dates of your program, please contact the Housing Office with your full name and student number to request an application.

It is your responsibility to complete and return the application via email. A room cannot be booked without a completed application.
