April 14, 2022
Capilano University has announced that it will be building its first on-campus housing facility. The student housing complex will have 362 beds and a 250 seat dining hall, and will be built on CapilanoU’s main campus. The six-storey facility will include student study areas, lounge space, and a First Nations-focused reflection and gathering space. The new housing facility will be designated for first- and second-year students, with a priority on Indigenous students, and will include 12 accessible units. It will be designed sustainably, built with mass timber and wood framing, and will be aligned with CleanBC priorities. It is funded by $41.5M from the Government of British Columbia and $16.7M from CapilanoU, and is anticipated to be completed in late 2024. CapilanoU | BC | Daily Hive | North Shore News (BC)
