Capilano University students looking for more housing options in the North Shore will soon find relief.

The university is building its first on-campus housing, creating 362 beds and a 250-seat dining hall at the main campus in North Vancouver.

“The housing affordability crisis is experienced by people across the North Shore, and students are no exception, said Bowinn Ma, MLA for North Vancouver-Lonsdale. “This exciting project will provide Capilano University students affordable and secure on-campus housing as they study, while also adding to the overall housing stock in North Vancouver.”

This project is part of the Provincial Homes for BC plan, which includes building 8,000 new student beds by 2028 so more people studying in B.C. can have affordable housing alternatives to pursue post-secondary education.
