Selkirk begins construction on student housing projects

Selkirk College has broken ground on two student housing projects. The two new buildings will provide 112 more beds on the Castlegar campus and 36 more beds on the Nelson Silver King campus, increasing on-campus housing by 71%. The buildings will be built using sustainable materials and with accessibility in mind, and will provide students with housing at below-market rates. They will also include dedicated spiritual spaces which incorporate Indigenous traditions. The Government of British Columbia is providing $29.1M to the project, and Selkirk and the Columbia Basin Trust will provide $2M. The project is part of BC’s 10-year housing plan to build 800 new student beds by 2028. The buildings are expected to be completed for the start of the 2024 academic year.
