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.
