Take Your First Step

As an undergrad living in residences at SFU you might even become best friends with someone taking the same class as you. Each room is single-occupancy only (i.e., no roommate) which means that you won't have to share your room with anybody. We offer gender inclusive floors. Accessible rooms are also available in West Tower. Common areas (i.e., washroom, lounges, laundry) are shared spaces for all residents living in towers.
