The University of British Columbia has officially opened the doors to the Brock Commons North residence. The new residence brings an additional 316 beds to the campus, as well as a fitness area, games room, and study spaces.

The residence is part of the ongoing Brock Commons construction project, which also includes Tallwood House (completed in 2017 with 404 beds) and Brock South (to be completed in 2024 with 282 beds).

“We know the Vancouver rental market presents affordability and access challenges for some students,” said UBC Associate VP of Student Housing and Community Services Andrew Parr. “Being able to provide below market rate housing for students is a key goal for the university.”
