Building Styles January 20, 2020 - 12:45pm


(Building 10: Cottonwood, Building 11: Maple)

VIU Residence has two apartment buildings.  Each building is three stories tall and features beautiful ocean and mountain views. The Apartments were part of a large expansion, and construction was completed in 2003. These buildings were inspired by the Whistler Olympic Village, so they have a distinctive west coast feel.
