CapilanoU purchases three buildings to guarantee on-campus housing at Squamish campus

Capilano University has purchased three student housing buildings for its Squamish campus in order to offer guaranteed on-campus student housing to all Squamish campus students in Fall 2024. The buildings—which were bought for $55M—are located at the heart of the campus and are close to dining, recreation, and student services. The buildings contain 333 beds that are purpose-built for student housing and include single rooms, double-occupancy units, and apartments designed for resident assistants. “Housing availability in the Sea-to-Sky corridor is almost non-existent, and we recognize that creates a significant barrier for many learners who wish to study in Squamish,” said CapilanoU President Paul Dangerfield.
