Niagara College and Kwantlen Polytechnic University have both recently made student housing announcements. Niagara will add spaces for approximately 1,000 students at its Welland and Niagara-on-the Lake campuses over the next four years, which will triple its on-campus housing. The expansion is part of Niagara’s new master plan, which also includes renovations and improvements for the existing on-campus residences. KPU will develop a business case to support a future application for project funding from the Government of British Columbia. The funding would support a student housing project at KPU’s Surrey campus that would address the need for student housing.
