SFU opens family housing on Burnaby campus

Simon Fraser University announced the opening of sustainably-designed family housing units for its Burnaby campus this Fall. The two new buildings have 90 rental units, three of which are accessible. The units have been reserved for SFU students with spouses or common-law partners and/or children. The units have a high level of thermal efficiency and support passive heating and cooling to reduce energy usage. The buildings are also close to a variety of facilities and commercial spaces designed for parents and children. “SFU is committed to creating an inclusive and welcoming environment for all SFU students, and that means building appropriate accommodations for students at every stage of their life journey,” said SFU president Joy Johnson.
