You are a 19-minutes’ walk away from University Canada West and less than a 30-minutes’ bus ride away from University of British Columbia. Emily Carr University also takes 19-minutes to reach for which you have to take a ferry from Vancouver Aquatic Centre.
To make it easier to travel around the city, the accommodation is also well- connected via public transport, with the nearest bus stop just a 2-minutes’ walk away. Even the nearest subway, Yaletown-Roundhouse Station takes 11-minutes to reach on foot which is great for those who wish to head out and explore the city when they have spare time.
Each of the rooms has been furnished to the highest standards so that the students can concentrate on your studies. When you need a break from your studies, you can binge-watch your favourite movies in the living area or go on a cooking-spree in the kitchen. The accommodation also offers high-speed Wi-Fi so you can stay on top of your assignments.
During the weekends, let your hair down, and head to the Celebrities Nightclub which is just a 6-minutes’ walk from the residence with your friends. Grab a cup of coffee from Tim Hortons which is within walking distance to kick start your day. When you need to clear your head, take a walk in Emery Barnes Park or May and Lorne Brown Park, both of which are a stone’s throw away.
