UniverCity Resident Benefits
UniverCity Community Card
The Community Card, offered free of charge to all UniverCity residents, is just another benefit to the UniverCity lifestyle. SFU’s facilities are some of the best within the area and typically reserved for university students. However as part of SFU’s commitment to a sustainable life residents can benefit from these facilities.

Cooperative Auto Network
The SFU Community Trust has yet again established another partner in sustainability, this time with the Cooperative Auto Network
