In each of the residences, there are 12 students in total and a grouping of 6 students share a kitchen, with one fridge and stove and a shared bathroom on their floor.
In their statement, the BCIT Housing Office says, “with this increase BCIT Housing rental rates will remain below other Post-secondary schools in the Lower Mainland for the 2019 – 2020 school year. This new rental rate also remains below average rental rates for similar units in Burnaby.”
