    Since September 2012, Green College has partnered with UBC TREK to support Green College residents in volunteering at Lord Strathcona Elementary School. Lord Strathcona is located in the heart of Vancouver’s Chinatown, and is the oldest elementary school in Vancouver.



Green College will assign you a room type before you arrive to live in residence. Each type of accommodation provides you with your own private workspace and ample personal room, and all rooms come equipped with a set of basic furniture. In this section, you’ll find information on different room types at the College:

Single Room: Each single-occupancy room shares a bathroom with another single room.

Single Room Split: Two single-occupancy rooms share a bathroom in a two-level suite, with an additional shared living area.

Studio Room: A self-contained room with its own bathroom, suitable for single or double occupancy (priority is given to Postdoctoral and Visiting Scholars, and couples)

Consult the section on Fees to see differences in cost per accommodation option. Please note that none of our rooms at the College are wheelchair-accessible.

While we cannot guarantee your placement in a given room type, please discuss any particular needs or preferences with upon accepting your membership offer and tenancy. However, please note that preference can generally only extend from single room to split room, due to priority assignment of studio rooms.

Please note that our residential buildings are not generally suitable for persons with mobility or agility disabilities. Much of the property is on steep terrain, and there are many stairs throughout the facility. If you have a disability of this type and are interested in applying for resident membership, please contact the Membership and Accommodations Coordinator at for fuller information on the College’s ability to accommodate your needs.
