  • Construction Update, January 27, 2017: We truly apologize for the noise that the construction is making and for how long it has taken to complete. The snow and severe weather as well as freezing weather conditions caused a delay in the timeline and we are working as fast as we can to complete the work. As soon as we know the updated timeline and schedule, we will share with everyone. In the meantime, we will be stopping the work for this weekend
  • Summer 2017 and Fall 2017 Applications Opened on December 1st:  All prospective and current SFU and FIC students interested in applying for Residence & Housing for both the Summer (May - August) and Fall (September - December) terms should note that we have started taking applications via the Housing Portal on December 1, 2016.  SFU students are encoruaged to apply for housing at the same time that they apply for admissions to SFU.    
  • 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.
