New Micro Housing Units for UBC

The student housing situation at UBC Vancouver is about to get some trendy new spaces for students to rent in the form of new micro housing units.

630 units of different variations will be located in the Gage South Student Residence. The cozy new 145 square foot micro apartments going in on campus are the first of their kind.

Of the new units, 43 of them will be fully equipped with a bed, full bathroom and kitchen perfect for a student looking for their own space on campus. These are designed to cost lower than a traditional apartment rental. These smaller spaces will be available to rent from $670-$690 a month.

The new residence building will be put up near the bus loop on central campus. This building will contain the new micro units as well as a front desk and lobby, lounge rooms, private rooms for music and laundry services all available for the students living there.

These proposed new developments for UBC are scheduled to be finished in the year 2019 and will be most beneficial for students looking live right on campus. The University is considering adding more if they prove to be successful.
