Participate in housing needs survey by March 6

If you are a manager of staff whose work is not computer-based, please print this email and display it in a common work area for them to review.

What is your perspective regarding finding a suitable home in Metro Vancouver? Faculty and staff based in the region are invited to share their experience and needs by participating in the 2016 UBC Faculty and Staff Housing Needs survey. 

The results from this important survey will contribute to an updated understanding of faculty and staff demographics, household composition, current housing circumstances, and future housing needs and preferences. This information will help inform ongoing strategic policy discussions related to faculty and staff housing support at UBC.  

To complete the online survey, please visit the secure survey website by March 6, 2016:

The survey will take approximately 20 minutes to complete, and there is no need to provide your name. The information collected in this survey will be bundled anonymously for analysis and reporting. The final analysis report will be made available on the Housing and Relocation Services website in summer 2016.

Survey respondents are eligible to win one of two Fitbits or an iPad award. If you have any questions about this survey, please contact Housing and Relocation Services at
