Indigenous Student Cultural House

A sense of community, the concept of place and connection to place, forms the basis of the SFU Indigenous Living Community through the spirit of mutual engagement, respect, trust, and ceremony. This is an enriching intercultural living environment for Indigenous students from across Turtle Island. Residents can connect with a variety Indigenous cultures through activies, events, and engagement opportunities on campus. 

Your community. Your journey.

This year, we are working with SFU Residence and Housing to designate 22 rooms of the McTaggart House for Indigenous students. Students will have the opportunity to connect with one another by participating in an annual Fall harvest, cultural workshops in a newly renovated community kitchen with storage for traditional foods.  In addition, the McTaggart House has private bedrooms with shared washroom and laundry facilities.  Indigenous residents have the option for the meal-plan. Each room includes a bed, desk, chair, dresser, bookshelf, closet space and mirror. 

If you are interested in this opportunity for the 2019/2020 academic year, please let us know! All current and prospective students interested in this opportunity are encouraged to connect with the ISC.  

Canadian Indigenous students are invited to apply to live in this living-learning community. Students will participate in cultural and educational programming and engagement opportunities across campus and in the local community guided by the ISC.

  • Eligibility: All Canadian Indigenous (First Nations, Métis, Inuit) undergraduate students attending SFU
  • Meal plan is optional
