Construction underway for new student housing tower at BCIT Burnaby


Construction is officially underway for a new 12-storey mass-timber building at the British Columbia Institute of Technology’s Burnaby campus. The housing tower will provide 470 students with affordable on-campus housing and will more than double BCIT’s on-campus housing. The development includes studio units, private rooms with shared bathrooms and kitchens, study rooms, common areas, and a collaboration space. “The Tall Timber Student Housing project is a much-needed addition to the BCIT Burnaby Campus community – allowing more students the opportunity to live on campus while they pursue their hands-on education,” said BCIT Interim President Paul McCullough.
