Okanagan campus tour

Stepping foot on UBC’s Okanagan campus is the best way to experience life at a top 40 university and discover whether this is the right place for you. Your guided walking tour, led by one of our friendly and knowledgeable Student Ambassadors, will last approximately one hour and 15 minutes and include:

  • a visit to a residence, as well as some of our recreational and social facilities
  • an introduction to the many services available to students

After the tour, a Student Recruiter-Advisor will be available to answer your questions about UBC’s undergraduate academic programs, admissions information, scholarship opportunities, and more!

Please note: These tours are for prospective undergraduate students, their families, and guidance counsellors. Groups of five or more will need to request a group tour.
