Beginning today, UBC students will get a first look at a full-scale mockup of a 140-sq-ft student housing unit called a Nano suite. In June 2015, UBC announced the development of these smaller, less expensive student housing units to help address housing affordability and the demand for on-campus housing. A total of 70 Nano suites will be included as a pilot project in a new student residence building slated for completion in 2019.
