UBC Residence Lottery

YES. The news is out. Second years and up…WHERE ARE WE SUPPOSED TO LIVE?!?!!?!? First years are so lucky to have guaranteed housing, and for all you new coming first years….you guys are going to absolutely LOVE living on residence!! It is the best experience ever!

So this year’s residence lottery, I know more people on the waiting list than ones that actually got into residence. WEIRD. For all of you that lucked out and got into residence, that’s great! I unfortunately didn’t get into residence, and I’m not in a very good position on the wait list. It sucks. But it’s not the end of the world, and whatever happens will be for the best. As long as I have a place to live. People in the 1000s have gotten into residence before, so if you’re in the high hundreds, don’t stress. You just won’t know until later in the summer. But you should still look into backup housing. There are tons of on campus places that you can actually rent out. And you can also apply for year round housing!
