University to Offer Micro-Apartments as Student Housing
Proposed college mini studios register at 140 square feet and cost less than $700 a month
The University of British Columbia wants to help solve the problem of pricey on-campus housing by offering students a new option: micro-apartments. The university plans to add 70 units of these Nano Studios in the Gage South Student Residence on campus. Each suite will be 140 square feet, and feature a single or double bed that folds up into a desk, a kitchenette with a two-burner stove, sink, storage, mini fridge and freezer, and a full bathroom with shower and sink.
