Living on campus
Baker House, UFV’s campus residence hall, is much more than just a place to live: it is a caring community of peers, living, working, studying, and socializing together. Living at Baker House is the best way to get a great experience while at UFV.
As a resident, you are close to campus resources such as the library, the Writing Centre, Math Centre, Assessment Centre, Student Services, Media Centre and computer labs. You also have access to residence’s study rooms where you can meet to complete your group assignments or study together with your classmates.
With a timely application, a private bedroom within a two-bedroom suite on campus at Baker House can be yours for the year. Space is limited, so apply early − first come, first served! Follow application and payment procedures at UFV Residence.
