Campus Accommodations

The university will provide or cover the cost of accommodations for associate faculty who do not reside in the Capital Regional District and who need to come to campus for planning sessions, residency sessions, or other program-related matters. In instances when on-campus housing is not available, the university will make arrangements for off-campus accommodations.

On-campus accommodations is provided in houses with a bedroom, bathroom, full kitchen, living room, and laundry facilities. The university will make every effort to provide independent accommodations; however, during peak times, you may be provided with shared accommodations, which consists of an independent bedroom and otherwise shared common spaces. Accommodation is only provided for you, the Associate Faculty member. The university will consider a request to accommodate a family member or guest but may not be able to do so in every circumstance. Should such a request increase the cost of accommodation, you would be expected to pay the difference.

Program areas submit accommodation requests on behalf of associate faculty. A confirmation will be shared once the reservation has been confirmed. 

During business hours, 8:30 am – 8:30 pm, check-in/out services are provided via the Guest Services Desk, located on the main floor of the Learning & Innovation Centre. After business hours, check-in services are provided by Campus Security located in the Millward building.
