Located in the heart of campus near the intersection of Wesbrook Mall and University Boulevard, the Beta house is closer to your classes than all other undergrad residences, and all other fraternity houses. There is a bus stop seconds from the house; the UBC Aquatic Centre, Bird-Coop gym, ARC gym, and Shoppers Drug Mart are only a 2-minute walk away. The University Village (containing a food court, Staples, Starbucks, Gold’s Gym and a variety of grocery stores) is right outside our back-door. And if you are not feeling well, the UBC Hospital and Emergency Room is right across the street.

The house was completed in September of 2005. Rooms come fully furnished, complete with beds and mattresses, wardrobes, desks, and shelving, with additional room for anything you feel is missing.

The house has an elevator and is fully accessible for handicapped tenants. Additionally, the spacious downstairs-basement is transformed into a fully functioning weight-lifting/workout space.

The cost of living in the house is $875 per month to live in a double room. This includes rent and utilities, a full meal plan with a full time chef, access to the kitchen and its contents at all times, HDTV in common rooms, free laundry, and a full-time parking pass.
