Student Life

Think Tank is located in North Vancouver at the bottom of Lonsdale just steps away from the Quay and the seabus . This is a superb location to live and study. We strongly recommend that our students live in North Vancouver, so that commuting doesn’t detract from your Think Tank experience.

Housing Options

Please remember to always take pictures BEFORE and AFTER (prior to move in and post move out). This will help to ensure your deposit is returned to you when your tenancy is over.

Please also review the BC Housing and BC Tenant Act websites to learn more about your rights as a tenant in BC.

While Think Tank certainly feels like home to our students, you will still need a place to call your own.  We recommend finding that “second home” nearby the school so you can maximize the time you have to rest, eat and have fun. We have curated a list of some of our favourite local hosts:  they have opened their doors to former Think Tank students and have proven to be clean, comfortable, close to school and reasonably priced.

Other Options

Pad Mapper is a great tool to find rental deals in close proximity to our school.

Craigslist can also be a helpful site when looking for housing. Make sure you are searching in Vancouver, BC. and preferably in North Vancouver.  As well, we are located right next to the seabus, so public transportation is easy if you want to live in downtown Vancouver.


Finding A Roommate

If you would like to find a roommate to share accommodations with, please contact our office to help coordinate your search.

Working While Studying

Some students initially plan on working during their study period at Think Tank, which we do not recommend. We strongly advise our students to refrain from outside work while at school so as to allow complete focus on their studies. Our 12 month program is a very intense year, and we prefer that you prioritize your time and focus your energy on polishing your skills to create a great demo reel that will land you your dream job.
