UBCO Residence Life nominated for international awards

by | Feb 7, 2023

The UBC Okanagan Residence Life program has been nominated for the ACUHO-I / Benchworks Assessment and Impact Awards in Housing for the 2021/22 academic year. Based on an annual international benchmarking assessment, UBC Okanagan had one of the highest scores of any campus in both the Satisfaction: Community Environment and Satisfaction: Roommates categories.

Factors that contributed to the nomination include roommate experience changes, including better roommate matching for Living Learning Communities, an increased focus on community building through RA-led events, an enhanced residence orientation process, and more. Out of 300+ institutions, UBC Okanagan is one of just 19 student housing programs nominated for this year’s awards. Recipients will be announced in June 2023.
