Students have moved in to UBC's new Exchange Residence. The residence has 651 beds, including 71 nano suite units that squeeze a kitchenette, full bathroom, closet, and convertible double bed/desk combination into 140 square feet. Highly central, the residence is steps from the Aquatic Centre and Student Centre. Built above the new UBC bus exchange, the UBC bus loop is virtually at the Exchange Residence's front door.
