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 be coming here to celebrate, explore UBC, and start preparing for life after high school.
What should I bring?
Your Destination UBC confirmation package includes a list of important personal items that you’ll want to bring. There will be lots of indoor and outdoor games, plus activities like yoga, running, and walking tours, so be sure to pack the clothing and footwear you’ll need. If you play an instrument, bring it along too. Above all else, come with a positive attitude – and we’ll take care of the rest.
What if I’m registered as part of the travel reimbursement program?
Once you register for Destination UBC, we’ll send you an electronic package that outlines the next steps for booking your travel. In the meantime, you can review the How will I be reimbursed? details for your campus (Okanagan or Vancouver) online.
Follow along on Snapchat, and use the #destinationubc hashtag to share the beginning of your UBC story and find other students on Twitter and Instagram. If you’re on the Okanagan campus, we have a Facebook group too. Who knows – you might make a few friends before you even arrive!
