Live in downtown Vancouver at GEC Viva, where you’re close to False Creek marinas, Granville Island and the famous Granville Street nightlife

1311 Howe St, West End Vancouver, Vancouver, V6Z 2P3 View Map
210 student beds
At GEC Viva, your student housing is a stone’s throw from the False Creek marinas - the perfect place for a wander when you need to get away from your books. At weekends, it’s a short walk to George Wainborn Park for some sunbathing and a picnic, or hop on the ferry to Granville Island and treat yourself to a doughnut from Lee’s Donuts of Granville Island. Cross the bridge to Vanier Park to explore the Museum of Vancouver for a spot of culture, or watch a game at the Rogers Arena. In the evening, enjoy a night out close to home on Granville Street, Vancouver’s famous nightlife hotspot.

At GEC Viva, you’ll live in a luxurious, elegantly-furnished apartment suite in a student residence and hotel in downtown Vancouver. Wake up each day to a serene mountain backdrop and get your day started by hitting the treadmill for a workout in the fitness room. Afterwards, freshen up in the glass shower and whip up a snack for breakfast in the stylish kitchen.

When it’s time to head to campus, it’s a 15-minute drive to the University of British Columbia, or about 40 minutes on the bus or by bike. It’s 10 minutes by car or bus to University Canada West, or a 19-minute walk that takes you past Yaya’s Café, where you can pick up a coffee.

When you need a break from your books, clear your head with a workout in the weight room or head out and meet your mates for a drink at a nearby bar, like the Yale Saloon. Alternatively, stay in and relax in the sitting lounge, where there’s also a large balcony for you to sit out on when the sun is shining.

There’s plenty of room to invite your friends over for a home-cooked meal at GEC Viva when you get hungry. Head out to eat at the nearby Twisted Fork Bistro if you don’t feel like cooking, or grab some sushi from Alpha Sushi. When you get home, there’s just time for a relaxing bath in the soaking tub before you head to bed.

There’s secure underground parking if you’re bringing a car to college with you, and the common areas are cleaned for you each week, so you can focus all your energy on studying and having fun in Vancouver.
