Do not buy a mini fridge. Make sure to make friends with your roommates. Use unisplit to keep track of communal expenses.

I had a great experience staying at Brock. I got along wit my roommates, had a nice view from the 14th floor and studied frequently in the lounges. I like location and the close proximity to exchange as well.
I don't like the community in Brock. Nobody seems to talk to each other and being from Vanier, I'm very used to a more homely vibe. I do like the apartment, the view and the infrastructure though.
Definitely one of the best buildings in Ubc. Great furniture and size of the apartment. My view is also amazing!
