I'm in the Thunderbird residence at UBC. It's mostly grad students around here, and very quiet. Overall it's a pretty good deal.
With Save-On-Foods now on campus Thunderbird is only a 15min walk away from food. We used to be 10min walk and 10 min bus ride from a disgusting Safeway.
Congratulations on your acceptance! I got into an MEng but will be applying for deferral… need a break from UBC.
