Finding Somewhere To Live

Moving to a new place can be daunting, in particular finding somewhere to live. WAS understands this and we present the following options.


As the Winter season is challenging to find housing WAS  has arranged Winter long term accommodation  at HI Hostel*

(*November 27, 2020 to April 1, 2021 – WAS Accommodation package at HI Hostel $4950.00, tax included)

The Hostel accommodation is open to International students AFTER they have completed their mandatory 14 day Quarantine following the rules of the Canadian Government due to Covid (The Quarantine must be done in Vancouver prior to arriving in Whistler).  This booking cannot be cancelled or shortened and must be prepaid in full by October 20th 2020 .

This is for one bed in a 4-bed shared room. Included is weekly housekeeping and linen changes as well. Only WAS students are eligible to live in the student rooms.

*This option will be booked through the Whistler Adventure School only (please do not contact the hostel directly for long-term accommodation as it is not offered to the public and cannot be booked directly).
