Sustainability

All of the properties managed by Village Gate Homes are part of a complete community at UBC built on principles of sustainability, providing social, environmental and financial support to the university’s academic mission.

As part of a complete community where residents can live, work, play and study, Village Gate Homes at UBC provides residents with the unique opportunity to access athletic, artistic and cultural activities only a university can offer. This on-campus residential life assists UBC in being a vibrant, fully integrated community day and night.

Our homes have been designed and constructed adhering to the UBC Residential Environmental Assessment Program (REAP). REAP provides a framework to ensure all residential development responsibly addresses water conservation, energy-use reduction and indoor environment quality. You can have the peace of mind knowing that your home is the healthiest environment for you and your family with minimal impact on future generations to come.

Proceeds generated through Village Gate Homes’ buildings benefit UBC Endowment funds that generate support for a wide range of programs and activities such as scholarships and bursaries across the University in perpetuity. By choosing to live on campus you are benefiting the sustainability of the University’s academic mission.
