If you live in Year Round Housing, you can apply to sublet your room to other eligible UBC students during the summer (May–August).
Live in Acadia Park? You have different sublet guidelines.
Apply for a sublet
1. Make sure it’s an eligible sublet
There are different criteria for Summer and Winter Session sublets. Plus, the sublet needs to be an eligible length, and the sublessee needs to meet certain requirements.
The contract holder and the sublessee must each continue to meet all applicable eligibility criteria to live in residence.
Please email us if you have any questions about eligibility.
2. Submit your sublet application
Applications must be submitted at least 5 business days in advance of the requested occupancy date. Submitting your application early does not guarantee it will be approved.
At peak periods, due to the volume of applications and related inquiries, it takes much longer for applications to be reviewed. Therefore, it is best to submit your application much earlier than 5 business days in advance.
Please note that sending repeated emails will only add to the volume of inquiries and result in longer overall wait times for applications to be reviewed.
To increase the likelihood that your application may be approved as quickly as possible, we recommend that you double check that your application meets each and every eligibility requirement outlined above in section 1.
Applications must be submitted by the UBC Contract Holder, not the sublessee (renter).
After the sublet is approved
UBC Campus Rules: COVID-19
UBC students, including those living in student residences managed and operated by UBC Student Housing and Community Services (SHCS)—contract holders and sublessees alike—are required to follow any campus-wide rules, along with any specific rules for residents and guests of SHCS put in place to address COVID-19 or other infectious diseases.
Contract holders: please ensure your sublessee is aware of any applicable rules.
Residence Standards violations
If the sublessee violates any residence standards, the UBC contract holder may face consequences for their sublessee’s actions. Contract holders are responsible for the behaviour and actions of their sublessee throughout the tenancy.
If you have any additional questions that are not answered on this website, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that assignments staff at the Student Housing Main Office are not authorized to make decisions about sublet applications. They will not be responding to any inquiries seeking approval of a sublet application.
