Jump Start: Your official welcome to life at UBC

Jump Start: Your official welcome to life at UBC

If you’re entering first year on UBC’s Okanagan or Vancouver campus, you’ll want to register for Jump Start. It doesn’t matter if you’re a domestic or an international student, whether you plan to live on or off campus, Jump Start is for you.

Okanagan campus

Jump Start is a week-long program designed to introduce you to the University, your faculty, and new friends on UBC’s Okanagan campus.

On August 25 and 26, you’ll have a chance to move in and get settled. From August 27 to 31, you’ll take part in workshops and fun activities that not only prepare you for the academic year, but also help you create your community at UBC. By the end, you’ll be well on your way to feeling at home on campus and in Kelowna.

“Attending the Jump Start program was a fantastic decision. Not only did I meet new people, I became more comfortable with the transition of moving away from home.”
