CapU Residence is an inclusive community that welcomes students with a wide variety of experiences and needs. We are committed to ensuring that our community meets the needs of all CapU Students.

Accessibility Needs

Our single occupancy rooms and a limited number of bachelor apartments are prioritized for students who indicate an access or medical need for one on their residence application. If you require this type of accommodation, please ensure that you select the “I have a special requirement for accommodation” option when completing your application and follow the steps to provide as much detail as possible to help us meet your needs. We may also ask you to provide documentation to our Accessibility Services department to help us better respond to your request.

Transgender & Non-Binary Students

At present, our student information system only allows for the use of binary legal gender as entered in the Apply BC portal when you applied for CapU. We recognize that this poses a significant challenge to the safety and comfort of some of our students, particularly when selecting living options and roommates in residence. If your gender identity does not match what is shown in our student information system, we will work with you in a confidential setting to ensure that you have the opportunity to live in the type of community and room that contributes best to your safety and comfort. This is most effective when we have the opportunity to speak with you directly about your needs by calling 604 990 7951, but you may also choose to provide this information to us in writing by selecting the "I have a special requirement for accommodation" when applying to residence.

Band/Nation Sponsored Indigenous Students

Excepting the $50 application fee, our residence fee schedule can be modified to meet the payment schedule of your band or nation. Typically, this means that your $500 confirmation payment will be deferred so that it can be included in the payment from your band or nation during the term you are living in residence. If you have received an offer to live in residence and will be receiving sponsorship from a band or nation, please contact housing@capilanou.ca for further instruction.

If you have questions about the sponsorship process related to residence fees or tuition, please contact Joel Cardinal, Community Engagement Facilitator with First Nations Student Services at 604 986 1911 ext. 7438 or by emailing joelcardinal@capilanou.ca.
