A brief description of the incentives or programs:

Faculty & Staff Housing
As part of its commitment to Equity and Education, the SFU Community Trust has made an effort to incorporate below-market housing options for SFU faculty and staff into UniverCity, thus providing affordable housing options for members of the SFU Community in close proximity to their place of employment.

The first of these projects, developed in partnership with Vancity Enterprises, is the 60-unit ‘Verdant’ project. This development offers family-oriented housing units that were sold to owners at 20 percent below-market rates. As a condition tied to each title, these environmentally-friendly units will continue to be resold at discounted rates.

For more information on this development, please see www.verdantliving.com for details.

While currently sold out, all SFU staff and faculty are eligible to purchase units in Verdant as current owners bring them to market. The SFU Community Trust manages a waitlist for available units. To add a name to the waitlist for a unit in Verdant, please contact the Trust by phone at 604-291-3000, by email at info@univercity.ca, or drop by the Community Trust office in the Cornerstone between 8:30am and 4:30pm, Monday to Friday.
