Get ready for Destination UBC 2017

Get ready for Destination UBC 2017

We can’t wait to meet those of you who have registered for Destination UBC on the Okanagan campus and the Destination UBC Aboriginal Student Welcome on the Vancouver campus. Hundreds of newly admitted students from all over Canada will converge on our two campuses for these exciting events. It’s a time to celebrate, explore UBC, and prepare for life after high school.

What should I do now?

If you’re attending one of our Destination UBC events, you’ll want to check out what’s happening on social media before and during the event. Visit our Destination UBC Facebook pages for the Okanagan campus and the Vancouver campus to connect with fellow incoming students. Start sharing the beginning of your UBC story with the hashtag #DestinationUBC on Twitter and Instagram. It’s easy to make friends before you even arrive!

Plus, follow us on Snapchat (we’re at youbcsnaps) to get a preview of springtime on campus.

What if I am registered as part of the travel reimbursement program?

Once you register for Destination UBC we will send you an electronic package outlining the next steps to book your travel. You should also review the “How will I be reimbursed?” section of the program conditions for the Okanagan campus and Vancouver campus.

Review your confirmation package for a list of some important personal items to bring along. We have a variety of indoor and outdoor games and sports equipment. Plus, there are some activities like yoga, running groups, and walking tours that require proper clothing and footwear. If you play an instrument, bring it along and participate in a jam session. Above all else, bring a positive attitude and we will take care of the rest!
