UBC residence assignments pep chat.

Clearly room assignments have been released, because the Class of 2017 Facebook group blew up. I’m watching yous. 😉 And of course the questions arise – “Can we switch rooms?” “What’s Totem like?” “What’s Vanier like?” “What’re the new Totem houses like?” “Which residence is better?” “What are the pros and cons?” ETC ETC. It’s awesome that you are all so eager and anxious to find out what your rooms and residences are like, but the main thing is, everyone’s residence experience is DIFFERENT!!! It’s what YOU make of it! You might hear other older students saying that _____ was so awesome and it’s the place to live…but that’s based on THEIR experience, just because you didn’t get assigned there doesn’t mean that your experience is going to suck. But in saying that, you ARE able to switch out if you’re not content with your current assignment(not that you really have that great of an idea as to what it’s like to live in your given assignments :S). Keep in mind that when you have found someone to switch with, make sure they’re the same gender as you, and then email UBC regarding the switch, because they do actually need to know. All of the vanier houses have shared bathrooms on each floor, as do totem houses except for the two new houses which have connecting shared bathrooms between two units or private bathrooms. Feel free to leave questions below and be sure to check out my other posts regarding UBC residences, but keep in mind that those are all purely MY opinions. #alwaysreppinvanier

  1. Hey I just discovered your blog its awesome. I’m a first year resident, but due to first year overflow they are putting a few of us in the ritsumeiken house. Do u have any idea what its like in there?

    • I actually don’t know what it’s like firsthand since I’ve only seen the outside of it, but from what I’ve heard it’s not bad, plus you’ll be with other first years that have been placed there and it’s right beside Totem, and you can participate in Totem events as well. If you haven’t checked this out, see if you can see the virtual tour http://www.housing.ubc.ca/rits-ubc-house/overview Sorry if I wasn’t overly helpful :/ but thanks for stopping by ! 🙂
