housing questions for past and present UBC students!

Hey! UBC is one of my top schools that I want to attend in the future but the housing situation is making it hard for me to make a decision. As you all probably know the rent rates in Vancouver are craaazzzy high so I was wondering if any past or present students could answers my questions about residence and renting. 

 residence
 1. how many of you were accepted into residence in 2nd, 3rd, or 4th year? 
 2. would you recommend living in residence any year other than 1st? 

 renting
 1. how much was your rent?
 2. how many roommates did you have? 
 3. how close to UBC were you/how long did it take you to get to school? 
 4. how hard was it to find a place to rent? 

Also just a general question, how were you able to afford university at UBC?

 Thanks for taking the time to read this, I really appreciate it. :)
