The environment you choose to live in while at university will greatly shape your experience as a student. At Carey Centre, you’ll get to be part of a tight-knit Christian community while enjoying delicious meals in our dining hall, a spacious dorm room of your own, and multiple lounges for studying and hanging out.
Carey Centre is a ministry of the Canadian Baptists of Western Canada (CBWC), and therefore, our common foundation is our faith in Jesus Christ. We are a community composed mostly of Christians while others hold other faith backgrounds or none at all. Our desire is to help those who are interested in our community grow in their understanding of Christian faith.
As a student resident at Carey, you’ll get to take part in an experience unlike any other on campus:
- A vibrant community of 40 students, most of whom share in Christian faith and values
- A Residential Dean who is involved in the community and available to journey with you as you navigate student life
- Resources and events for your spiritual growth
- Three freshly prepared meals every day in our dining hall
- Fun, weekly gatherings to de-stress from studies
- Prime location at the heart of campus: close to eateries, coffee shops, the Nest, the bus loop, the beach, and forest trails
- Quiet atmosphere and beautiful surroundings
Carey Leadership Labs is a new, multi-year practicum to develop a deeper spiritual connection with God, a deeper missional connection with the campus, and a deeper connection between faith and the student’s chosen field of study. As a student at Carey, you have the option of participating in this program! Upon each year’s completion, each participant will receive a leadership certificate for use in your portfolio or resume.
Carey student residents enjoy living in large, single occupancy rooms with a desk, chair, dresser, and a single or queen-sized bed. All units have an en-suite washroom with a tub or shower, high-speed internet access and a local telephone.
Residence at Carey Centre is reserved for undergraduate and graduate students studying at either the University of British Columbia or another on-campus local college. Since Carey is a ministry of the Canadian Baptists of Western Canada, students from CBWC churches have priority in the application process.
