We asked UBCO students their opinions on living in Kelowna.
Was it difficult to find a place? Do you consider housing expensive?
Jenna McCully, from Calgary, said she enjoys living on campus and doesn’t find rent to be expensive, even though for her second year she’ll be taking out student loans.
Stepanie Coleman, from Minnesota, lives off campus and started her search for a living space early so she didn’t have a problem finding a place, and thinks renting is expensive for a suite.
Madeline Green, from Ontario, lives on campus because she said being from Ontario, searching for a place is difficult.
Shaden Damen Edson, from Alberta, lives on campus and lives on campus for the accessibility. She said it’s affordable for her but there could be less-expensive places.
