Parent & student supporter in residence experience
Have you ever wondered what it is like for students to live in student residence? Wonder no more! JumpStart provides a unique opportunity to the families of our students to spend the night at the CapU Residence and experience programming with Residence Advisors (RAs).
Keep in mind, students and families will be staying in different areas and programming will be different. Only our Saturday dates offer this experience.
You do not have to live outside of Vancouver to participate in this experience. To learn more about the CapU Residence visit their website: .
JumpStart for new students
Simultaneously to parent and student supporter orientation, there is a student workshop day called JumpStart. Here, students will learn about financial aid & student loans, academic advising, student services and more.
If you are a student, visit to learn more and register.
*Students and families do not need to attend during the same day if schedules do not allow. While both events are at the same time, students and parents will spend their time separate.
