UBC students scrambling for housing

CKNW interviewed Andrew Parr, UBC’s managing director of student housing and hospitality services, for a story on the challenges university students face as they search for housing in Vancouver.

“We’re in the midst right now of growing our housing inventory by about 3,500 beds between 2015 and 2020. We’ve opened two new complexes in the last couple years that have added about 2,300 beds to the campus and we have three other projects on the go,” Parr said.
