We will try our very best to help everyone find accommodation they can afford, including billets, and recommend you start looking early to get a sense of what’s out there. If you have questions about location or accommodation, don’t hesitate to be in touch. Some less expensive possibilities include:

Dorms at University of British Columbia 

These range in price from $35-$150 a night. UBC is picturesque, and probably a 45 minute commute to SFU Woodward’s by bus or bicycle (a good hilly ride).


Variety of options with proximity to the studio. Option to space-share with other participants, which we are very happy to help facilitate.

Vancouver Vacation Rentals

There are a number of hotels and hostels in the area around SFU Woodwards; these vary in price and are generally more expensive.

Please contact Associate Producer June Fukumura at for more information about accommodations during the intensive, including potential billets, dorms, hotels and other suggestions.
