The SFU Community Trust (the Trust) has two goals:
- Create a complete community on Burnaby Mountain, with a diverse selection of housing and a full range of shops, services and amenities.
Currently over 3,500 residents have made UniverCity their home; in time, 7,000 more will join them.
- Build an endowment fund to support teaching and research at SFU.
To date, UniverCity had contributed over $29.6m to the SFU Endowment Fund for research and education.
