Our Program & Services
Student Bike Locker Program
There is a designated locker in the parkade specifically for students to safely store their bicycles while attending classes. To gain access to the bike locker you must first obtain an access card which can be done by visiting the SABVC office.
Please note the access card requires a $30 cash deposit, which will be refunded when it is returned at the end of the semester. Each access card is active during the current semester only.
SABVC has partnered with First Steps to address the growing influx of students arriving in Calgary seeking better living conditions and opportunities. Housing is a major concern due to rising prices and increased competition. In response, SABVC, driven by the desire to offer the best for its student members, collaborated with First Steps to create a specialized Student Package.
SABVC members will receive a discount of 30% on First Steps services.
UPass / Optional Transit Pass
Looking to save money on bus and train passes? Take advantage of the BVC UPass and have discounted transit passes.
The BVC UPass offers full-time students a reduced fare for a four-month semester.
SABVC is here to assist students in getting their UPass. For additional details, please visit BVC/UPass.
