UBC commuters get boost with "home away from home"
New facility aims to give students a chance to rest during long days at school
UBC's new Collegia opened this school year to act as a home away from home for commuting students.
The private lounge offers a social place for first-year students to rest and nap by a river rock fireplace, heat up a meal, and meet with friends.
For those who want a place to stay overnight occasionally, UBC also offers beds in a Commuter Student Hostel in the Walter Gage Residence.
The CBC's Michelle Eliot took a tour and put together this photogallery.
