If you’ve submitted your application to UBC – congratulations! We’re looking forward to learning more about you.
While you wait for your admissions decision, you can get a head start on deciding whether UBC is the right place for you by joining us for a campus tour.
You can find lots of great info and photos about what it’s like to be a UBC student on Instagram and TikTok, but there’s really no substitute for connecting with some of our current students and having them share their knowledge and experiences with you. Our students are excited to show you their favourite spaces on campus, and to answer your questions about life and learning at UBC.
What to expect
We have two tour options at both of our UBC Okanagan and UBC Vancouver campuses – in-person campus tours and live virtual tours.
In-person campus tours
Visit us on campus and take a walking tour to get to know UBC. Tours are run by friendly student ambassadors who are excited to show you around campus.
UBC Okanagan tours last 90 minutes and UBC Vancouver tours run for 2 hours.
Live virtual campus tours
During your Zoom tour, you’ll learn more about UBC, see photos from some of our favourite spots at UBC Vancouver or UBC Okanagan, and hear from real students about their experiences in class, residence, and beyond.
UBC Okanagan tours last for 75 minutes, and UBC Vancouver tours run for 90 minutes.
We offer tours for UBC Okanagan and UBC Vancouver on multiple days every week. You can find our most up-to-date schedules and discover how many spots are available by visiting the campus tours webpage.
How to register
To view all upcoming Okanagan and Vancouver tours, and to register, visit our Tours and Events page.
If you are Indigenous (a member of a First Nation, Métis, and/or Inuit community in Canada) and would like to register for an Indigenous campus tour or connect with an Indigenous advisor, please email our Indigenous campus tours team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can’t make it to one of our in-person campus tours or a live virtual tour?
No problem! If you are unable to attend one of our in-person tours or one of our live virtual tours or you want to learn more about UBC at your own pace, you can also experience our two campuses by taking a self-guided virtual tour.
Also, if you are in Kelowna and are unable to attend one of our scheduled in-person campus tours, the staff at the Student Recruitment desk (UNC222) in the University Centre would be happy to provide you with a Self-Guided Walking Tour handout for the Okanagan campus.
