A Sustainable Community

In the 1990s, SFU created its Community Trust to build a community that would generate income for the university from development without damaging the environment. That community became UniverCity, a model for practical and affordable sustainability.

UniverCity is an award winning, mixed-use, transit-oriented community being developed adjacent to Simon Fraser University in Burnaby British Columbia. With 3,200 residents, the community will ultimately have a population of 10,000 people. SFU Community Trust is developing UniverCity as a model sustainable community, generating endowment wealth to support teaching and research at SFU.
