Rent-Geared-to-Income programs

The Rent-Geared-to-Income (RGI) is a housing program offered by UBC to make Faculty Staff Rental Housing more affordable and accessible to employees.  

RGI program participants pay 30% of their household income before taxes and adjustments to rent eligible units within the UBC Faculty Staff Housing portfolio. You may be eligible if you meet certain employment, income and assets criteria. 

Read through the following sections to check your eligibility and learn more about the program before applying. 

Please note that we are currently over-subscribed for a studio/1-bedroom suite under the Program and that we are not accepting applications from applicants who would qualify for a studio/1-bedroom suite until further notice. We are only processing applications from applicants who qualify for a 2- or 3-bedroom suite at this time.
