SFU Residences for 2010 [pics]
SFU has finally been given the okay to move forward with building dorms for the Surrey campus at Central City. The subsidized student residences will locate in two high-rise towers, located adjacent to the North Surrey Rec Centre.
Previously, SFU Surrey has been hampered in its recruitment efforts by the lack of student residence facilities and the high cost of housing in the Lower Mainland, says campus director Joanne Curry. “The new residence will help us recruit students from outside the Vancouver area, such as other parts of B.C. and Canada, and will also offer local students the opportunity to live away from home while attending the Surrey campus.”
