Housing for students and visitors

There are lots of options for places to stay in Abbotsford. Students can choose from Lá:lem te Baker, our on-campus housing, or private accommodations off-campus. Visitors can stay at local hotels or rent furnished homes.

Where to live

Living on-campus keeps things simple. You are near your classes and amenities like the library, your food is prepared for you, and you will get to know other students easily.

Living off-campus gives you some flexibility. You can live with a Canadian host family or in your own rental apartment. Note that apartments may be furnished or unfurnished.

On-campus housing at UFV

Our on-campus housing is known as Lá:lem te Baker (Baker House). It is a “home away from home” for students from across Canada and around the world.

Lá:lem te Baker is on the Abbotsford campus, so your classes are close by. The on-campus housing has Wi-Fi and study rooms where you can work or study together with your classmates.

Additionally, your neighbours are other students who you will see every day. With common kitchens in Lá:lem te Baker, or sharing a meal in the cafeteria (in a different building), you have lots of opportunities to meet UFV community members.
