NVIT adds family housing to Merritt Campus

Nicola Valley Institute of Technology is creating dedicated family housing on its Merritt Campus to ensure that students with young families can pursue an education. The housing project will include townhouses with a mix of two- and three-bedroom units, bringing space for 30 more students and their family members to live on campus. “As B.C.’s only Indigenous public post-secondary institution, the addition of this housing will enhance the overall student experience and further contribute to the success and well-being of our NVIT community, making education as accessible as possible for those learners coming from rural as well as remote Indigenous communities,” said NVIT President Ken Tourand. The housing project is expected to be completed in time for the Fall 2026.
