Added to Concordia‘s college housing in 1996, the Boe-Olsen Apartments are located at the corner of Eighth Street and 10th Avenue South. This facility features 17 efficiency apartments with two upperclass students in each apartment. 

While offering a different social environment than most residence halls, the college apartments are managed under the same policies and regulations that govern campus housing. The apartments are overseen by a Residence Life professional staff member and a student building manager. All apartments are fully furnished and equipped with a kitchen, which means that participation in a college meal plan is optional.

*The Boe-Olsen apartments will be offline for the 2021-2022 academic year.


  • Apartments in Boe-Olsen are studio style and contain one bedroom, a bathroom, living and dining area and a kitchen.
  • They are furnished with bunkable beds (80 inches by 39 inches), study tables, chairs, living and dining room furniture, curtains, internet access, stove and refrigerator. Additional refrigeration units must be approved in advance.

Other Features:

  • Laundry facilities: A laundry room is located on the first floor with an automatic commercial washing machine and dryer. Ironing boards are available; students furnish their own irons.
  • Study lounge: There is a small lounge on the first floor of the building, which includes a printer.

  • Cleaning equipment: Vacuum cleaners may be checked out from the building manager.

  • Storage room: There is no additional storage in Boe-Olsen; however, arrangements may be made to store some items in other halls. Talk with your building manager for more information.
