Students struggle to find housing in overheated real estate market

CBC interviewed Andrew Parr, UBC’s managing director of student housing and hospitality services, for a story on the difficulties students have finding housing in Vancouver.

“We do look at our rents that we charge on campus against the neighbourhoods in Vancouver,” Parr said.

He also noted that campus rents are at or below market prices.

Parr also spoke to the Vancouver Sun on the same topic. Parr and Thomas Davidoff, a UBC economics professor, were also referenced in a Radio Canada article on the same topic.
