Guest services and check in was very friendly and out of their way helpful. The campus is gorgeous, new, and very clean. Just under $50 for a single room on a peak season weekend was amazing. With a single room you do share a bathroom with your neighbour but it proved to not be a problem. Never bumped into them... More

We paid Kelowna a visit for a few days at the beginning of July. The unit we stayed in was a two-bedroom, two-floor townhouse. Not sure if it was only open to staff, or if it's available for rent to the general public. Generally clean and well-maintained, but the sheets, covers, and pillowcases (along with the towels) looked suspicious. Good... More

I always try to stay on-campus whenever/wherever I travel! It just makes the most sense. My single room was surprisingly spacious. Control of one's a/c, fan and heat was a blessing. I didn't miss having a television or wi-fi in my room as it was available in a common room down the hallway. Granted, wi-fi was a bit hit and... More

We've often stayed in university residences when we travel, particularly in the UK, as well as when we've attended events on university campuses. This was our first time at UBC Okanagan, and it was very good. We stayed in a studio apartment in Monashee, which had its own bathroom and kitchenette. It was clean, the bed was comfortable, everything was... More

5 of us stayed in a family room. It was perfect for what we needed. The customer service wasn't great though. We were told there would be a flat screen with HDMI hook ups. There wasn't. The people checking us in didn't seem to know what was going on. I was misinformed about what was needed for check in. On... More

My Soccer team was very pleased with the rooms. The staff was friendly and very accommodating and the booking representative (Maaike) was outstanding with her service. Definitely a great place to stay.

Kelowna can get expensive and the UBCO student residences are great value if you are looking for basic accommodation. They are certainly a desirable alternative to downscale (OK sleazy) motels available at this price and even much more. On the pro side, the campus is leafy and pleasant, the staff are students and are mostly friendly and very helpful, the... More

Hello Credulous Traveler! We are very please with your review. Basic but clean in our motto and it tells you exactly what to expect when you are staying on campus. No 300 thread-count linens or down filled duvets, but 300 smiles to greet a customer, and very comfy comforters! I hope we will see you again some time in the... More

The residence was very new and everything was clean and tidy. Room was inviting, bed was comfortable and sharing the bathroom with one person was not so bad. The common room/kitchen on each floor was great. Also new and stocked with cooking equipment. Front desk was a bit far if you needed something (like a hair dryer) So bring things... More

Our team stayed here for the Kelowna Dragon Boat Festival & found it met all our needs. The accommodations were simple but affordable, and clean. There were outdoor areas where the team could gather to spend quality time after the races. Kitchens were not packed with dishes, etc, but we found everything we needed for our short stay. The staff... More

Had to catch an early plane from Kelowna and the ubc campus is 5 minutes away. So i decided to book a single dorm room for 38 bucks for the night. Room was clean and the single bed reasonably comfortable. Good place for cheap nights rest.

Hi Grant L. Thank you for your great review. I hope you had a good flight. Yes we are right across (5 minute drive) from the Kelowna airport and for a small fee you can order a taxi cab on campus and be dropped off in front of "departures" any time of the day (or vice versa if you arrive... More
