  • Increased Residence Construction Activity: Residents should be aware that the SFU Residence area is currently undergoing increased construction activity, which has resulted in increased traffic, intermittent roadway and pathway closures and construction noise. Please note that the exterior demolition of the Louis Riel building is almost complete and all residents are advised to use the Towers Breezeway as their main route to move around the Residence area until further notice.  Please refer to the Residence Construction Updates page to view a map of the construction zones and updates on the various projects currently underway.
