The most recent addition to the residences on campus, Exchange is equipped with studios, and apartments of up to four bedrooms. Its dazzling mountain and ocean views are few of the amenities that residents of this building enjoy. Every apartment comprises a private washroom, kitchen, laundry area, living space, and fully furnished room. It is a short walking distance from the bus loop, UBC Rec, the Nest, UBC Life Building, and the aquatic center. Prospective residents of exchange should be aware that construction is happening nearby so they may experience some noise pollution.
