  • Security deposits and first month's fees are to be paid within the time specified in the letter/e-mail approving the residence application.

  • Priority will be given to leases for twelve months or longer for all suite types.

Co-Ed Quad Accommodations

St. Andrew's Hall reserves the right to request a student to withdraw from quad residence on twenty-four hours' notice where circumstances appear to the Dean to warrant such action.
  • All Quad applicants will be considered individually.  St. Andrew's Hall will attempt to honour requests for roommates, which will be best facilitated by all completed applications being received together. Only requests made at the time of application will be considered.  However, there is no guarantee that roommate requests can be accommodated.

For my wife and I, St. Andrew’s Hall (SAH) was more than just a well-taken-care housing facility on the UBC Campus. It was a home away from home. Being newcomers to Canada, the warm welcome that the SAH staff showed us at that time truly made our new journey in Canada delightfully enjoyable. The genuine care, hospitality, and friendship that they have given to us during our three years of living in SAH are simply beyond words. What truly sets SAH apart from others is their relentless effort in building a strong sense of community and belonging among their tenants. So, thank you, St. Andrew’s Hall for the unforgettable memories of being home away from home!
